A flowing floral art nouveau design with leaves making a border and with characteristic whiplash lines in a deep green print. A somewhat unusual interpretation of the style for an English tile it makes me think more of the french taste and reminds me of the famous metro ironwork. usually found in the bare print it is nice to see it coloured

Art nouveau transfer prints are quite unusual and offer a great introduction to understanding of the style, as lead glazed majolica and art nouveau grew up almost hand in hand it is not always easy to distinguish. The emphasis on the movement of th line seen in print crystalises the form without the distraction of relief decoration.

Verso very clean with rubber stamped pattern number Marsden's 'M' which looks like an upside-down W.
