A full foral geometric tile with bold flowerhead surrounded by fronds and with corner motifs in the later gothic style when simplcity gave way to complexity. As usual for the company a good quality tile well printed and tinted with four colours.

An unusual feature of the tile is that the printed pattern is slightly raised this would appear to be additional adherence of glaze to the print. Whilst most collectors are familiar with glaze thickness varying between print and clay it is usually inconsistent suggesting unintentional, this is precisely the same all over and either a fluke or intended. I go for the latter given Craven Dunnill's prowess, it does add to the visual interest the relief though slight adds that touch of third dimaension which even to some extent comes across in the image onscreen.

Verso perfectly clean, usual embossed naming and kiln badge, painted pattern number.

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.
