One of this excellent series designed by John Moyr Smith for Mintons, a series which is not as often found as I would expect given the universal appeal of fairy tales. First introduced in 1874 they remain in Minton's catalogue certainly well in to the 1890s, most would have been produced earlier in the date range as over time the popularity of printed tiles especially in single colour faded.

Blue and white is of course most appropriate for this tile entitled Blue Beard and apparently blue and white for this series would seem to be rather rare. In Annamarie Stapleton's book about Moyr Smith by and it is shown only in brown and black prints. Other colourways are also rarely found.

Verso very clean, removed from furniture, embossed Mintons etc.
