Condition Report

Tiny chip top left corner, a few other very tiny/minute edge chips. Darker patches on the border are manufacturing flaws, where the glaze is thin and doesn't provide adequate cover for the stain it bakes to a darker colour. Surface condition is near perfect, the tile is very clean and bright and the glaze has excellent brilliance.

 
One of a series of twelve landscapes engraved by L T Swetnam in1886 and the series introduced the following year. Few of these scenes are identified and tiles from the series do not come along very often. An interesting mix of decorating techniques being both lithoprinted and block printed, lithoprint for the fine detailed scene and block printing for the solid colours in the borders.

Shown in the catalogue, also in single colour brown as pattern 2228 and elsewhere seen as pattern 2231 in another colourway; this to my mind being the most attractive colourway.

Verso very clean, named and badged.


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.
