The Minton Encaustic Tiles in St Stephen's Hall, were, as elsewhere, designed by A.W. Pugin. He thought these examples particularly successful, for he wrote to Minton in 1852:

I declare your St Stephen's tiles the very finest done in the tile way, really vastly superior to any ancient work. In fact they are the best tiles in the world!

Proof, if proof were needed, that Pugin did not see his endlessly fertile Gothic inventions as being mere imitation of medieval originals.
