This is an excellent tile and an excellent illustration of the breadth of art nouveau design. Formal with regular lines most would call it art deco yet it was almost certainly designed in the edwardian era rather than the 1920s or 1930s. The company closed down in 1915 and the design although not common is seen from time to time, I see a group every five years or so. Other known designs from the 1910 - 1915 period are for the most part more rarely seen.

Corn Brothers are not widely recognised but they produced a great variety of superb art nouveau tile designs. This is a different Corn Brothers than that which morphed in to The Henry Richards Tile Company in 1901 but still of the same famous family of potters.

Verso very clean, embossed copyright.
