A pretty floral design by Corn Bros using their older title of W & E Corn, Polyanthus coloured in bright red and blue with green leaves and set against a flaming sun. I have never seen the sun coloured yellow, quite understandable, it would have been a difficult painting job and too much yellow would likely detract from the finished effect. One of only four designs they are recorded to have registered, a good choice for it is seen from time to time and so presumably sold quite well. Not only super colours but perhaps the most brilliant glaze I have seen on Corn transfer printed tiles.

Of interest to some there are some different manufacturing flaws on some of these tiles, I find flaws quite interesting and understanding them adds to the understanding of tile making, the constraints and the problems they had to overcome.

Versos very clean, printed initials, design registration number and pattern number.

Perfect condition but a few manufacturing flaws which carry their own interest. It stuck to something else in the kiln mid right on the face and the edge an on removal the glaze was stressed slightly and we see a straight crazing line or possibly a partial hairline but it doesn't go through the tile at all.
