Style/technique: Floral majolica

Dimensions: 6" x 6"
Date: circa 1895

 

Quite a rare tile, Mintons Ltd were late to the majolica party although they did go in to hyperdrive and by 1895 were producing some really excellent wares. A big bold floral design, quite naturalistic, at first impression one may think Sherwin & Cotton. Just two colours but the moulding sufficiently deep and the glazes translucent and rich that the end result is a good tile.

Verso some smoke stain otherwise clean, embossed Mintons etc, the grip pattern of the type more often seen on printed tiles and rarly on majolica.

 

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 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.
