An outstanding hand painted profile of an eastern gent an a superb quality tile apparently one of a series for a similar but different profile within the same border is found in Mintons art Studio pattern book. Lovely colouring with two shades of blue and lemon, finely painted and most brilliantly glazed. Possibly designed by Henry Stacy Marks

The tile was made a fraction oversize and the edges have been slightly and most carefully filed for the original installation in furniture. Not immediately obvous and when held in the hand or displayed of little import for the glaze is most brilliant and it is a super quality and attractive tile.

 

Top and bottom edges are those trimmed in this image, they have been chamfered undercut too as was the manner of craftsmen. The amount of filing, just about 2mm or one-twelth of an inch can be seen from comparing the plain borders.
