This is a fabulous quality tile, Super quality of design, wonderful manufacture, modelling of the mould, pressing and glazing, great burgundy glaze, not a single manufacturing flaw on the tile and that is rare. Stylistically a fusion of neo-classical, arts & crafts and art nouveau, similar sensibiities to the Mintons design in the background.

The quality of manufacture can not be underestimated which should limit the candidates for maker, It is better quality than either of the Mintons produced of the type, Malkin perhaps though I can't recall any embossed tile by them quite as crisp. E Smith did some similar quality wares, Craven Dunnill and Maw were certainly capable but from the known manufacturers my best guess is Burmantoft's/Leeds Art Pottery.

Two tiles to compare, here a Minton with design dated 1898, here a similar tile from the same collection and with extremely similar characteristics.

Verso very clean absolutely plain, unmarked save for a decorators mark in glaze.
