Minton Hollins Aesthetic Bird Printed Tile
  • Style/technique: Pictorial Print
  • Manufacturer: Minton Hollins
  • Dimensions: 6" x 6"
  • Date: Circa 1880


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 twenty two in 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.

Possibly designed by E W Godwin but John Bradburn is also a contender especially as he worked for Minton Hollins during the appropriate period designing mostly aesthetic floral patterns but also some with birds. Bradburn did some pictoral designs for E Smith.

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.
