An excellent design a variation of the famous Morris & Co 'Longden' pattern. In a trellis or chequer with alternate sprigs and stylised flowerheads but rather than trellis squares we have octagons, quite an unusual feature. The sprigs are budded and lushly foliated, the sunflower-like flowerheads are bold and more complex than most. Printed in a warm chocolate brown on ivory clay.

The design was registered to Wm J Fieldhouse of Stephenson Street, Birmingham, one of a mere eighteen known designs registered to Birmingham addresses in the 25 years between 1884 and 1909 and a rare opportunity for a Brummie to get a tile with genuine local interest. Fieldhouse operated The Griffin Foundry a name known well to midlands antique fireplace dealers and Stephenson Street would have been their city centre showroom and offices.

This tile bears no identifying marks but I have one in my collection with the printed registration number and also printed marks for H A Ollivant of Cliffe Vale, Stoke on Trent. Again another interesting point as whilst most tile manufacturers did make tiles to order for clients this is the first that I am aware of for sure made by Ollivants for another company.

Verso very clean, slightly stained from the original fitting in an iron fireplace, unmarked.
