This is an excellent and rare tile, if your reaction is ??? I understand but nevertheless it is excellent and rare. Such tiles mostly used for walling, often in chequer arrangements, very few have survived. A bold floral design, would be readily recognised in colour but in monochrome the glaze designed to spread light the design deliberately diffuses the pattern.

Verso perfectly clean, unmarked generic rails, Marsden? - Wedgwood? - Steele & Wood? - I can't say. One of those not instant impact tiles but for sure interesting and one that grows over time.


The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format and on screen is about the size as it would be in real life at the same distance. 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 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.
