A somewhat uncommon Wedgwood tile with a medieval style design as popularised by the arts & crafts movement artists of alternating stylised flowerheads and sprigs in a chequer pattern. Such designs appear from around 1880 and several of the major tile makers did similar including Mintons Ltd, Minton Hollins, Sherwin & Cotton and Copeland, rather unexpectedly it is the Copeland that I recall seeing most often and not this one before. A block printed pattern in two colours again a feature of these similar designs but uncommon by Wedgwood.

This pattern has also been seen with the printed pattern name Kinsley along with pattern number D46 (D prefix for block prints) written in pencil. I suspect pattern names were used for tiles featured in brochures/catalogues and at exhibitions where they were front facing to the public, trade order by number. Wedgwood named a few it seems, I know Ring & Rose, Mikado, Old English of course but mostly it appears just numbers.

Verso perfectly clean, pattern number in pencil otherwise unmarked save for a single letter H but a known Wedgwood blank.


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.
