A design that we see from time to time and these are particularly fine examples. A good botanical pattern of blossoms and fruit on the branch as is often the case blossom and fruit shown at the same time. The fruit is Medlars which was historically very common although it is now rare. A very full design in the arts & crafts 'all-over' taste more often found on the celadon clay that Sherwins used these are especially appealing examples with great colour, contrast and brightness. See here for an interesting comparison.

Verso very slightly grubby, no adhesive residue (was dry fixed) most unusually with the embossed grid of Malkin Edge yet a known Sherwin & Cotton design and with their printed pattern number. It is believed that Sherwin & Cotton began decorating other companies biscuit before progressing to manufacturing their own.

One very tiny, two minute chips, extremely mild discolouration in the crazing.


The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format and on screen is about the size as it would be in real life at the same distance. 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.
