Notes: Literature: Catleugh, Jon 'William de Morgan Tiles', 2002, p. 79, p. 94, pl. 135,
Note: De Morgan supplied designs for twelve P&O ships between 182 and 1900. These rare tiles were originally used in the P&O liner RMS Arabia, built by Caird & Co. in 1898 and designed by T. E. Calcutt, as a frieze just below the ceiling in the first class companionway. RMS Arabia was torpedoed on 6 November 1916 en route from Sydney via Fremantle, Western Australia to England, 180 km south by west of Cape Matapan, Greece. Divers salvaged the tiles from the wreck in the late 1970s.
