One very tiny corner chip and a little rubbing on the blue at the centre and petal on the right.

 

Style: Art nouveau
• Technique: Majolica
Manufacturer: Corn Bros*
Dimensions: 6" x 6"
Date: circa 1905

 

An excellent bold majolica art nouveau tile in brilliant and unusual colours, a nice touch of cobalt blue in the flower and dusky pink background. The pink background is a proper pink although not not hue of the bright 'rude' pink that was occasionally used around the same date but definitely pink rather than the pale browns which are close to pink.

Verso very clean, 'C's in opposing corners and pattern number rubber stamped.

 

* There were at least three companies with Corn in the name and two Corn Bros. E. R. Corn who started the tile business in 1891 said of the transfer of the busness to the new Pinnox Works in 1903, "at the same time, the existence of two other concerns bearing the family name -"Corn Bros." and "Corn Bros. & Co." - having led to confusion, the name of W. & E. Corn was allowed to lapse and the firm became "The Henry Richards Tile Company Limited".
