Chip top left corner, light roughness to the edges and a little wear to the raised outline mostly around the base of the stem. An excellent bright clean tile with high brilliance in the glazes.

 

• Style/technique: Art nouveau majolica
• Manufacturer: Unattributed
• Dimensions: 6" x 6"
• Date: circa 1905 

 

An excellent design symmetrical with flowing and whiplash leaves surrounding three flowerheads it is well stylised yet retains good botanical quality. Well moulded and decorated in five colours including three for the petals and with the most unusual feature of a moulded background.

This is a great quuality tile which unfortunately remains unattributed, a handful of designs with similar versos have been noted and of the known manufacturers Gibbons Hinton may be a possibility. A rather simplified version of this design and without the moulded background was made by Alfred Meakin suggesting that this is the original and of a fairly early date ie very close to 1900.

Verso very clean no recognisable marks.

Only one available.


The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format and on screen is about the size as it would be in real life at the same distance. A larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format can be forwarded by email if required.

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.
