A good, bold art nouveau design with characteristic whiplash lines and highly stylised floral pattern the leaves emanating from the head in a hydra like fashion. Not a design seen very often and then usually in green this in a clear almost colourless glaze is rare. Probably not so rare in its day as such bright designs would have been mostly used for walls where they would reflect light well. Of course wall tiles tend to disappear with the buildings they were installed in rather than in washstands and fireplaces from whence come most antique glazed tiles.

Verso very clean, one of Gibbons Hinton's bar variations, embossed pattern number.
