Eskimo illustrations on ceramic tiles

I've been thrift-shopping again this morning. I returned home without a single cup or plate (!) but instead I found these illustrated tiles which I liked a lot. I guess they are from the 50's based on the illustration style and colors. They are signed 'Mika'.

My favorite is the one with the dog sled on it. (I've been dog sledding once and it was fantastic). These have probably been used as coasters, as someone has glued cork to the back of them. I think I'll just put them on display.
