A very rare A W N Pugin quatrefoil design moulded in high relief yet with subtlety and fine detail. In lead glaze majolica, embossed and deeply indented and glazed in four colours with extremely high brilliance. Pure gothic modern majolica (lead glazed) tiles are really quite rare especially multicolour designs, they represented challenges in decoration being low viscousity and patterns as this without raised outlines to contain the glazes were difficult to paint and fire. The development of such glazes coincided with the end of the aesthetic and floral tile style periods and the onset of art nouveau by which time gothic was already a footnote yet is at its most expressive when represented in brilliant lead glaze.

They may possibly be earlier if made by Campbell Tile Co.. Colin Minton Campbell owned both Mintons and Campbell Tile Co. until 1883/5, Cambell Tile Co. made some of the more technically difficult tiles for Mintons who for the most part made only printed tiles in white clay, and of course the studio tiles.

Versos clean, Mintons' grids, painted pattern number.
