An excellent bird study print, there are three similar series of bird tiles from Minton Hollins, each with different borders and each done in numerous colourways. One set of ten and two sets of six making perhaps twenty two for it is reported that three tiles appear in two series. All with an excellent variety of aesthetic style borders, super designs of the times.

Made in a variety of colour combinations, quite possibly a dozen or more, it would be fascinating to collect a group in twelve different colourways. This a cream clay with a fine dark brown print and block printed grey-green background.

Often reported as designed by E W Godwin but this is not the case, also suggested to be by Robert Edis but again not the case. John Bradburn is the most likely designer, as he worked for Minton Hollins during the appropriate period designing mostly aesthetic floral patterns but also some including birds. Bradburn did some pictoral designs for E. Smith and later moved to Maw & Co where he produced many designs including faience for public buildings.

Verso near perfectly clean, embossed usual legend.
