An excellent art nouveau design with a nice
blend of symmetry and asymmetry. Bold bright
flowers in regular form surmounting swirling,
whiplash stems, a big design that fills the tile
and is embossed and indented.
An organic bas relief moulded tile with no
outline or channel to retain the glazes so the
colours necessarily limited to a complimentary
palette. This design is usually found in just
two or three colours but these examples are in a
super five colours. Five colours is above
average for even cloisonné and tube line
tiles and in addition there is a good range for
we can say five different colours, green, grey,
yellow, pale blue and cream and all nicely
painted without unsightly bleeding. I can only
recall organic bas relief art nouveau tiles in
five colours by one other company, the rainbow
glaze specialists Marsden who indeed managed as
many as six.
