This is a tremendous tile, I find it difficult to believe they didn't sell more of them for I can't recall seeing one before, I added one of this small group to my collection and sure would have done so had I seen one in the last twenty five years or so. Art nouveau tiles from Minton Hollins are rather scarce, similar to the other really major tile specialist of the late Victorian era Maw & Co they made their money mostly from large scale schemes and established customers, with top quality manufacture they could not compete with prices from the likes of Richards, Barratt and especially Boote.

So we have a super design, symmetrical with bold flowerhead as typical of the style and with two graduated rich and translucent blues. A great design that fills the tile without being excessive, top quality moulding and superb glazes. Embossed and indented in low relief with a super two colour blue flowerhead and rich, luscious green foliage.

Verso very clean, usual legend.
