The sweeping stylised Art Nouveau recessed cartouche frames a wildly flowing flower perhaps a poppy. A design we see from time to time but not previously with this mustard yellow ground.

This pattern was also done by Corn Bros/Richards and unusually the Corn/Richards version is the least detailed. Lea & Boulton were fine tile makers and made some really excellent wares often better than those of the known and reputed brand names.

Verso marked L.& B. T.

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 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.
