Easily the best embossed majolica tile from Wedgwood that I have ever seen. Great subject matter, the shoreline, shell, waves rolling and breaking, seaweed in those wonderful shapes that it creates. Call it art nouveau or arts & crafts style (not the process) and I don't think you'd get many arguments because it exudes style, discussions perhaps for it is certainly a tile with merits worthy of discussion. Fabulous colours too, the royal blue and green of the seaweed are super rich and radiate opulence, the crest of the waves is bright and contrasting.

Having first seen the tile illustrated in Austwick in the 1980s I of course desired it but I was also sceptical that such a great majolica tile could be by Wedgwood whose claim to fame is printed tiles not majolica. There are quite a few errors in the book indeed on the same page only two out of six are correctly described and those both from the popular Calendar (Months) series. It was twenty five years later that I actually saw my first and was able to buy it, I think seeking for 25 years qualifies as rare.

Versos perfectly clean embossed Portland Vase mark and 462, painted pattern number.
