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
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.
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.
