A pretty arrangement of arum lilies and fronds set against a lace background and within a key pattern border.

This is tile is both common and uncommon, a quirk of victorian tile design. In its usual itteration, without the lace backdrop, in my experience it is the commonest of all the victorian floral patterns, certainly in the top three or four. And it is a charming tile, the balanced layout and natural colours having a homely feel, many collectors will have one in their collection and many are reused for tiling. The lace background gives this version of the design an aesthetic feel, perhaps an updating of the design to account for modern fashion. It was probably made a few years after the original, in the 1890s. The pattern was also made in a majolica version.

Great manufacturing quality, the glaze has very high brilliance and shows the colours off to their best.

Just one medium chip on the bottom edge near the left otherwise near perfect with just a few few very tiny marks. It has a brilliant, consistent glaze and the colours are bright.
