Condition Report

Perfect apart from a single very tiny chip on the bottom edge.

 

A most unusual art nouveau majolica tile with a very bold and highly stylised design. The leaves reaching out to the corners are amongst the most stylised near abstract leaves to be found in art nouveau design, the flowerhead a pure offset square and as such very symmetrical.

It really is an amazing design that combines two opposing aims, timelessness and modernity. It would fit well in the 1920s and be called art deco, equally well in the 1960s outpouring of design. Go back in time and it would be great as an aesthetic design or even fit in with gothic sensibilities. The designers at Richards if one knew their names would be better appreciated in the tile world than the noted Voysey and Day!

Verso perfectly clean, diagonal bars, unmarked save for painted pattern number which is in sequence with designs registered early in 1905.

 

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.

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format. Customers may request a larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format for closer inspection which will be sent by email.
