When I first saw this I wondered if it may be by Wedgwood as they produced some similar designs but now I'm not even sure it is english, it may be continental, perhaps belgian or french. A nice design, competantly engraved and printed, it repeats both vertically and horizontally which strikes me as rather curious, to my mind one looks good, a wall would look a bit odd. English manufacturers did not produce such repeating designs that I can think of but I have seen some at least similar from continental companies.

Verso perfectly clean, a little clay loss from removal from its installation. Rails, embossed R in a lozenge shape like the pre 1884 british registration mark and printed number D54. Wedgwood used D prefix pattern numbers but only for block printed tiles rather than lithoprint.



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.
