A nice victorian aesthetic fruit tile printed in black on off-white. A full depiction of gooseberries within three stylised borders each with corner motifs, this to my recollection is the only transfer printed tile featuring gooseberries. One of a series designed by John Windsor Bradburn for Minton, Hollins and with his distinctive style. Not a formal series as such although several were registered on the same day however they do have a sense of unity about them and would make a great collection or fitting. I can well imagne them in an aesthetic styled washstand or sideboard.

Artist's mongram JB at the bottom of the circle.

Verso very clean, embossed Minton Hollins etc, printed design registration lozenge which somewhat unusually due to Minton Hollins sharp grip pattern is with a little effort is legible.
