A beautifully detailed aesthetic tile one of a series of twelve that are quite rarely found, lovely pictures representing idyllic country life and its closeness to nature. Featuring a multitude of elements, scenes of country landscapes, children playing outdoors, floral and fauna a ram, butterflies and flowers with five different stylised floral and geometric borders. A fun and entertaining tile in nice colours the dark brown print showing well against the buff clay body.

Minton Hollins lesser known and their picture tiles less often found than those of Mintons Ltd the china company yet their wares were generally superior. This is a rare series, twelve tiles are recorded pattern numbers 1568 - 1579, I collect them in this colourway and still only have four.

 

 

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. 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.
