An excellent art nouveau design made by Ceramique Faienceries de Gien and marked C F G verso but a design well in the english taste. For good reason because this design was also done by Corn Bros and likely designed by them for an english registered design has been noted made by Gien and copying english designs was quite common for continental manufacturers more so than vice versa.

This has more to it than any of the Corn examples I can recall which have always been more limited in colour usually white ground, green leaves and blue or yellow flowers This with the addition of the outlining to the flowers makes a much fuller and satisfying example of the pattern, the green ground is also deliberately mottled.

So a fascinating tile, an english tile made by the French (although the company was started by an Englishman about eighty years earlier) and they did it better than us except that the glazes lack the brilliance of the english. In recent years have seen more of the french than english version but we now have one Corn Bros tile here.

Verso very clean, generic bars, C F G embossed.
