No Minton Hollins art nouveau designs are seen with any great fequency but this does come along from time to time and is probably their second most popular art nouveau design. Of the jewelled genre which seem to date from around 1907 and were limited in the period that they were produced for the fashion for decorative tiles declined rapidly in the next few years. As with most jewelled designs one can see some classical influence the other predominent style of the times but the art nouveau is clear and definite.

This is the only Minton Hollins tile seen regularly with manufacturing flaws, it seems that the high number of tiny bobbles in high relief was a challenge for the moulding process. Hollins manufacturing quality in majolica tiles was usually at or near the best, certainly few other were in the same ball park, Maw and Godwin & Hewitt the only really comparable majolica manufacturers.

Verso near perfectly clean, usual legend.


The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format. A larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format can be forwarded by email if required.

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 are readily visible. 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.
