An unusual series from a company in existence for many years whose wares are infrequently found. A series of ten pictorial subjects and a registered design (although one must take it that it was the border pattern that was registered) block, printed in sepia and grey.

One of the most amongst many curious and humorous series for they are gastronomic subjects most of which concerned with hunting and gathering of foods including pineapple and turtle. The pictures are also found on 4" x 6" tiles with just slender borders and also upper body pictures with borders top and bottom. The designs registered in 1884 predate the more famous and also rather curious gastronomic series designed by Louis Solon and made by Mintons Ltd, another case of the most famous name in tiles copying rather than originating.

With a plain rail verso embossed Webbs Tileries Worcester the style almost identical with the common Wedgwood rail verso. It is considered highly probable that Webbs made tiles for Wedgwood and most especially (some of) their block printed patterns.

 

The image is a little oversize rather than cropped close to the edges so that the edges can easily be seen and any chips etc can be quickly spotted. Other marks described are usually not visible at all when the tile is viewed straight as one normally sees it and can only be seen with a critical eye when the tile is tilted to catch imperfections in reflected light. For more details of how we describe marks see Condition.

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format. Customers may request a larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format for closer inspection which will be sent by email.
