G Harold Elphick was not only the architect of Nevill's New Broad Street Turkish Baths, but also the designer of some of the tiles.

He registered the design of these interlocking tiles, which were produced by the Craven Dunnill firm and illustrated in their catalogue. They were also used at the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, and survive in the entrance there. They are known as Jackfield tiles, since several producers of this type of decorative tile were located at Jackfield in the Ironbridge Gorge.
