Date: circa 1905

 

This is a really excellent tile, super design and a super tile, I can't recall seeing this design before and was pleased to add one to my personal collection. A bold 'triple tulip' genre design but in most exceptional high relief both indented and embossed. It is rare to find such high relief majolica tiles especially in art nouveau style where most are low relief and at times simply the outline.

Essential for the appreciation of relief is the quality of the glaze for it needs to be translucent and yet having depth of colour. This glaze fulfills both criteria and is fabulous, a great golden brown which shows an excellent range of hues according to the height/depth of the relief.

Malkin, under appreciated and represented, Austwick to blame to a reasonable extent as Malkin incorrectly attributed to Pilkington by them.

Verso very clean, no adhesive residue, M T W & Co embossed. This the older grip pattern and so apparently predating 1907/8 when it appears a new pattern was introduced.

Just the slight chipping mid right edge otherwise perfect. No surface marks at all most exceptional for such a high relief tile.


 

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.
