An excellent tile, a quartered design in the trellis genre with alternating flowers and foliage, a style so beloved by the arts & crafts movement. Sage green body with dark brown print and three colours perfectly painted.

Sage green clay bodies were fashionable, a little more durable than white and a lot more expensive according to a 1905 price list which shows plain sage tiles at almost double the price of white. Green being the most relaxing of colours eminently suited for decorating in the home but not so often found perhaps due to the price premium. Majolica tiles of course are more often found with green backgrounds than any other colour.

Verso very clean, very slight smoke and rust stain, embossed Staffordshire Knot mark and printed pattern number.

 

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format, 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.
