Rare Views Tile L T Swetnam Minton

  • Condition: Good
  • Price: £195 (approx $282)
  • Ref: 03894


This was quite a popular series in the 1890s but on six inch tiles and in plain brown, black or indian blue print. In colours they are quite special, especially the eight inch version set within its border with printed band of bead pattern and plain bands tastefully coloured in 'gold'.

The colours really bring it to life and soften the over intensity of the shading found on both Wise's and Swetnam's engravings, it appears that the engravings were intended to be coloured over for that's how they appear in the pattern book and they look so much better in real life too.

This view as we can see as the engraving is named is Boppart on the Rhine and shows the medieval town with the twin spires of the church in the background.

Verso clear of adhesive, slightly grubby, emboseed Mintons etc and England.

Small shallow chip right edge just retained within the outer border, a few other very tiny > minute rim chips and wear to the tip, tiny spots of wear to the enamel around top right and lower left.
