George Nelson Low Relief Architectural Tiles

I can't find much about George Nelson's tile. Anybody know of a good link for more info/pics?

George Nelson Tile at a 2005 Treadway Auction (Lot 953)

Update: Longtime D+R and Hooptyrides reader Scott tells us:

Saw your post on the George Nelson Pomona tiles. They were part of Pomona Tile's "Distinguished Designer Series," in which celebrity designers were commissioned to create tile designs. I have a pre-Nelson Pomona tile brochure (c. 1958) that features tile designs by Saul Bass, Paul McCobb, Dorothy Liebes, Millard Sheets, Paul Laszlo, etc.
Saul Bass tiles? I had no idea. None.
