A nice example of this series designed by Mrs E E Houghton for Mintons Ltd and introduced in 1880. One could be forgiven for thinking 1920s art deco given the straight lines cherubic figures, flat colours and typeface. An unusual colourway for the series with warm brown outlline coloured with shades of orange and very well executed.

Unusual for Mintons in that it is printed and painted overglaze, there may have been technical difficulties producing the oranges with underglaze colours but also possibly overglaze printing was preferred to ensure clarity of the lines being unaffected by glazing and kiln variations which could lead to blurring.

 

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.
