A view entitled 'Old Cloisters, Rouen', they being attached to the ancient cathedral having quite an eventful history. A nicely detailed engraving printed in dark brown and painted underglaze.

Quite similar to the 'Views' series from Mintons China Works especially the "Old Houses Rouen" view the series engraved by L T Swetnam. This view also appears in the Mintons catalogue however this tile is not by Mintons indeed is unattributed and the manufacturer almost certainly copied it from the same source as Mintons. Picture books were widely used as source materials for pictures on ceramics and when signed for example by Wise and Swetnam usually indicates that they were engravers rather than creative artists.

This and the companion tile were centrepieces in a cast iron fireplace.

Verso unmarked generic bars, the die has been modified a central circle for a badge has been filled in. Possibly Ollivant,

 

The image is a little oversize rather than cropped close to the edges so that the edges can easily be seen and any chips etc can be quickly spotted. Other marks described are usually not visible at all when the tile is viewed straight as one normally sees it and can only be seen with a critical eye when the tile is tilted to catch imperfections in reflected light. For more details of how we describe marks see Condition.

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format. Customers may request a larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality PNg format for closer inspection which will be sent by email.
