    These were very well framed, but decided to take apart to see them properly
    All individually signed, Don't think they are that old, am I right in thinking maybe Italian

    Many thanks

    Beautiful. Classic Persian (Iranian).
    The writing is Farsi, the Iranian language, which uses modified Arabic script.

    Hi Charlie,
    When I said I bought many, they were very old when I bought them. Most of mine were over 100 years old when I bought them. With the change from Persia to Iran and the fall of the Shah many old tiles were "unloaded" on the antiques market. I can not be sure but I think yours are older also.

    Greg, yours would have been Qajar dynasty. My guesstimate for Charlie's is 1960s-70s, in Qajar style.

    Hi Any Jewelry,
    Thanks for the information. Now that I look at backs of Charlie's tiles they do look newer. I never had any that made a picture, They were all different sizes.
