An excellent bold floral design in bright
colours, dark brown near black print with super
underglaze colours, typical green and yellow
well lifted by rich deep pink, almost cerise,
and a wonderful orangey brown that captures the
glow of autumn leaves.
This design was registered to O'Brien, Thomas
& Co, one of just a handful they registered,
O'Brien, Thomas & Co were upmarket hardware
merchants in London. It appears to have been
made for them by The Decorative Art Tile Co or
perhaps Elijah Birch using a blank supplied by T
& R Boote. A rarely found design and a great
Verso mostly clean just a little grubby,
generic bars, printed registration number which
is just barely decipherable.
