A later art nouveau design showing some classical influence. A nice example of the convergence of the styles for it is difficult to identify specific classical elements yet the feel is there. Ribbons of course typically classical but even therein the folds and flow can well indicate style, classical ribbons, rococo ribbons, art nouveau ribbons can all be identified.

Fairly complex to manufacture and pretty good quality for Rhodes. Five colours all quite true to the lines, lovely translucent background green, deeper green for the foliage and ribbons, blue flower with yellow centre and buds and the white background is a definite positive too. Nothing outrageous about the design or colours in fact quite easy going and versatile, so much so that it is surpring that it is not frequently seen.

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format.

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. Surface 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.
