An excellent art nouveau design of quite a complex nature belied to some extent by the single colour. In high relief, embossed and indented, bold and dramatic flower, perhaps a honeysuckle, over simpler leaves and erect stem. A hint of gothic in the form but with complex elements in the design and moulding.

But perhaps the outstanding feature of this tile is the skill of the modeller for it is both precise and having great flow of the line. The symmetry is almost perfect - truly a demanding skill, the mould was fashioned by a truly skilled and artistic individual. The skill of the kilnmaster should not be overlooked for the near perfect glazing really gives the relief its definition. The glaze is consistent with the relief all over, no pooling where there should not be, brighter where it should be on the high relief and richer where it is indented.

This tile (and also see similar 03048 from the same original installation) is ideally suited for interspersing between brighter coloured 6" x 6" tiles in a horizontal display the plain darker colouring emphasising the brighter tiles without being tedious and indeed with their own interest.

Verso has indented pattern as face, otherwise unmarked but a similar tile from the same installation is identifiable and it appears in Carter's catalogue identified as No. 1083.
