The D & M Tile Company (1928-1939) did not survive the passing of its founder and animating spirit the English ceramist John Davies though its formulas and designs were acquired by Harry Hicks for his Hispano-Moresque tile works. In the years of its existence D & M produced some of the most beautiful tiles in California, most of them in Moorish patterns, for projects such as the Mission Inn in Riverside, the 1935 San Diego exposition in Balboa Park, and on the Grace Line ocean liners Santa Paula and Santa Rosa.
