A most fabulous and rare art nouveau tubeline tile from Gibbons, Hinton & Co., a design of the twin tulip genre well outlined and faithfully painted. Through the precision the skill and dexterity of the decorator shows through with an excellent mix of restraint and flair, terrific movement and flow of line in a symmetrical design.

Five glaze colours, relatively easy to use natural colours apart from the slightly quirky pale blue, but none the less for that for the contrast with the pale cream ground is perfect. The density of the stamens in the flowers creates a pooling effect with the yellow increasing its depth and hence producing graduating colour, not merely skillfull execution but terrific all-round design too.

Very few tubeline tiles are known from the company, this one of only four designs I ahve seen. Owen Gibbons was a partner in the firm, head of art and an artist and designer himself, he trained at Kensington Art School and was formerly head of the noted Coalbrookdale School of Art.

Versos a little stained, unmarked but well known Gibbons Hinton grip pattern.
