A portrait of the famous Australian Archbishop Carr.
Well moulded in high relief with an olive green glaze on
a buff clay body.
This must have been made by a quality manufacturer, my
inclination is to suggest Craven Dunnill but if so I am
surprised it is not marked. It could also been a local
Australian tile maker.
Price: £65 (approx $130)
Mark top left corner is an underglaze factory fault.

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
