Rare 8" Copeland Hand-Coloured and Printed Tile
 
  • Style/technique: Floral majolica
  • Manufacturer: Copeland & Garrett
  • Dimensions: 8" x 8"
  • Date: 1833 - 1847

 

A rarely found and very early Copeland tile, printed and painted overglaze in chinoiserie carnations and other flowers. A pleasing pattern in nice bright colours, super pinks and blues.

When this was made tiles were a niche product for English manufacturers, Herbert Minton was just just experimenting with floor tiles and Wedgwood occasionally made creamware tiles for the gentry.

Verso combed with impressed mark Copeland & Garrett around 'New Fayence' and printed mark with 'New Blanche' presumed to be for the particularly bright white body.

Not up to our usual standard of condition but still a nice tile we offer this for sale because it is an especially early and rare item.

Condition: Fair

Price: £95 (approx $188)

About ten significant chips to the edges, some surface scuffing and light scratches in a circle on the higher points but mostly on the plain parts and not affecting the central design.

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 570 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format. A larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format can be forwarded by email if required.

The image is a little oversize rather than cropped close to the edges so that the edges can easily be seen and any chips etc can be quickly spotted. Other marks described are usually not visible at all when the tile is viewed straight as one normally sees it and can only be seen with a critical eye when the tile is tilted to catch imperfections in reflected light. For more details of how we describe marks see Condition.
