A pretty Victorian aesthetic bird tile with a pair of birds chasing butterflies amongst blossoming branches framed within an aesthetic border. Very competently made as usual for Minton Hollins from the excellent quality engraving to the strong ivory body, excellent printing and excellent glazing. Artist's mongram JB at the base of the circle, most unusual to see a Minton, Hollins tile with artist's mark, probably John Windsor Bradburn. I think it's great, I've had one in my collection for years and I mainly collect art nouveau - I like butterflies too.

Verso marked as usual, has a little mortar residue but within the grid, indistinct design registration mark.
