A fabulous and rare art nouveau design, moulded in high relief and painted in four colours, super colours and brilliant glazes, an outstanding quality tile. High relief art nouveau designs are rare also this design being clearly intended for a frieze was used mostly for wall tiling so rarely if ever appears in fireplaces and furniture from whence most antique tiles are sourced.

Not marked and unattributed, other tiles from the same installation were by Maw and Carter so either is best bet. Few companies attempted high relief majolica tiles but both Maw and Carter did (it appears that Maw made Carter's majolica tiles for a few years).

Verso impressed version of front design to give a constant thickness of clay and make for a more durable tile. Very clean, a little clay loss where cement has been removed, painted pattern number.
