A charming 18th century scene of a young couple seated in the garden wistfully admiring a flower whilst her suitor serenades her playing a flute, in a Rococco style border. One of Minton's earliest picture series known as 'Watteau' subjects being in the style of the French artist Jean-Antoine Watteau and also echoing the earliest transfer printed tiles of Sadler and Green. The design dates from the mid 19th century but this tile would have been made around 1880. A tile from the series is illustrated in Lockett on page 193. The black print on the white body gives a sharp contrast and shows great detail.

Verso near perfectly clean, embossed Mintons etc.
