Arts & Crafts Hand Painted
Price: £55 (approx
Tiny chip to bottom right corner, a little
wear/enamel loss on the borderline.
Style/technique: Arts & crafts
Manufacturer: Shrigley & Hunt
Dimensions: 6" x 6"
Date: circa 1875
A super freehand painted design from this
famous firm unusual in several ways. The
fascinating colourway, shades of aqua and teal,
create an etheral effect.
Verso Mintons China Works, most rare, Minton
Hollins we see mostly and occasionally Copeland.
And an unusual Mintons verso too, rarely found
and only on early tiles. Unusual stencil brand
mark for Shrigley & Hunt too, quite an
oddity all round, no doubt it is Shrigley and
Hunt, there were few tile decorators at this
The image is a little oversize rather than
cropped close to the edges so that the edges can
easily be seen and any chips etc can be quickly
spotted. Other marks described are usually not
visible at all when the tile is viewed straight as
one normally sees it and can only be seen with a
critical eye when the tile is tilted to catch
imperfections in reflected light. For more details
of how we describe marks see Condition.
The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430
pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format.
Customers may request a larger 120 dpi image also
in maximum quality JPEG format for closer
inspection which will be sent by email.
