These tiles date from  the early 1930s when two schoolteachers, Sylvia Packard and Rosalind Ord, found that their mutual interest in painting ceramic tiles could earn them a living. In 1936 the Packard and Ord partnership began production in Barnfield, Marlborough, specialising in commissions and giftware. Before P&O was established at Marlborough and had their own kiln, Packard & Ord's tiles were often fired at Poole.

Queen Mary and Fortnum and Mason were regular customers, and examples are to be found in the V&A and private collections world wide.
