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
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
