Cylindrical glazed brick tiles

A blog post which I had introduced and written about many times last year, on the subject of cylindrical glazed brick tiles appears to have been a particular hit with readers of this blog.  So, here are a few more photographs of these unique tiles.  In my view, their uniqueness seems to stem not only from their shape but from the way in which they are used that is, cut in half and set in concrete and used for the sole purpose of providing a decorative feature alongside the edges of buildings, doorways and windows on houses which have flat roofs (rooves).  I am emphasising this point to explain that they are not ordinary roof tiles. 

In this photograph, the external outer edge of the cylindrical tiles have been filled in with concrete and painted white in order to give a tidy appearance.
