Arts & Crafts Hand Painted Barbotine Tiles

 

 

• Style: Arts & crafts
• Technique: Barbotine hand painted
• Maker: Unknown
• Dimensions: 6" x 12" each tile
• Date: circa 1895

 

Outstanding arts & crafts barbotine tiles in a full flowing style of flowers in a vase full of movement and vitality. Entirely handmade and with the most brilliant glaze and in an excellent range of colours including pink and blue the natural colours forming a perfect backdrop. Entirely handmade the body being in a fine almost porcelain-like clay and verso combed similar to the manner of Burmantoft but unnamed possibly by them or Leeds Art Pottery.

Bought as a pair there are differences in the colours as the nature of hand decorated arts & crafts wares, offered for sale individually for each in its own right is a fabulous work of art and pairs not so sought after as they were. When we first started trading the rule of thumb was that a pair of items (in particular vases) was worth three times the price of an individual, this is no longer the case as collectors now tend to display differently and are happy with a single example. Individually offered there is the benefit that two collectors can enjoy the work of art rather than one and as in this case each may have its individual characteristics, I prefer the colours of one and the clarity of the other and consider them equally valued as works of art.

Two very small chips just above bottom right corner, some light scratches near the bottom edge, a piece of kiln dirty in the foliage towards top left side and a few minor surface marks barely detracting from the brilliance of the design and glazing.
