A characteristic art nouveau design filling the tile with flowing forms. It is a design that we see quite often but rarely in these colours.

Red was a problematic colour tending to bleed in to and react with adjoining colours and apparently causing other problems in the kiln, it was more expensive, even plain red tiles were more expensive than the majority of colours. Nearly all manufacturers of this period had some tiles that suffered to some extent with reds but Boote often seemed to have more problems than most. These red tiles are good in general and especially good considering the complexity of the painting required and for Boote.

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.
