An excellent moulded majolica tile with a hummingbird hovering preparing to feed on nectar from a flower. Very pleasing soft moulding, I usually prefer the more striking moulding but this goes very well with the subject matter as does the natural green glaze.

Verso very clean unmarked but with two dovetail locking channels.

Most likely Wooliscroft although absolutely plain backs seem to appear on designs associated with other companies such as Godwin and Corn Bros, as do the dovetail channels.

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.
