A fascinating art nouveau tube lined tile with a generous flowerhead and whiplash leaves at the base. Tube lined in brown with rich deep red ground and green and orange leaves and flower. The buff coloured clay serves to darken the colours which gives an air of mystery, the darker speckles in the clay show through and create a mottle effect. As collectors of such tiles will know they really come to life in natural light - sunlight which absorbs and reflects the colours, screens which emit light and printing with its limited colour range can not hold a candle to the excellence of the original.

A most unusual clay body being grogged fireclay yet apparently dust pressed due to the lock rings. However the edges are undercut a feature which as interested collectors will know is not found on dust pressed tiles. This is an indicator of quality and was done so that the edges of the tiles would meet with the very minimum of grout. This kind of clay is rarely found dust pressed so perhaps it was plastic clay pressed in to a mould.
