An excellent bright stylised Reynold's Patent block print of a carpet of flowering sprigs, natural colours but not the least tedious, bright white body and brilliantly glazed.

It is quite surprising how few designs Mintons China Works produced, famous for their picture series primarily by Moyr Smith the conservative market they catered to for most of the 19thC seemed happy to continue buying the designs by A W N Pugin from the 1840s and 1850s. Whilst they produced a number of aesthetic designs in the 1870s and classical designs in the 1880s the major design trend of the times was ignored. Companies like Sherwin & Cotton, The Decorative Art Tile Co, T G & F Booth, Minton Hollins & Co and numerous others were producing botanical and stylised floral designs in plain prints and tinted with at times the most brilliant colours meanwhile Mintons China Works continued with the limited colour range and blocks of colour afforded by Reynolds Patent printing.

Verso perfectly clean and embossed Mintons etc.

Only one available.

 

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format and on screen is about the size as it would be in real life at the same distance. A larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format can be forwarded by email if required.

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.
