• Style/technique: Floral émaux ombrants
• Manufacturer: Sherwin & Cotton
• Designed by: George Cartlidge
• Dimensions: 6" x 6"
• Date: circa 1895 


An excellent monochrome tile, a well proportioned naturalistic floral design modelled indented and embossed and excellently moulded and glazed. A precursor to Cartlidge's famed émaux ombrants tiles noted for their photographic realism but we can only say that with hindsight for photographs of the day could not hold a candle to the tiles by Cartlidge.

Verso very clean, embossed Staffordshire Knot mark, pattern number and England.



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.
