This is an absolutely tremendous tile, a design in the Arts & Crafts manner of convolvous climbing a trellis made in bas relief moulded majolica. Moulded in high relief and with such sharp and crisp moulding that I have only see the like on tiles by Craven Dunnill one of the greatest of the art tile makers of the late 19thC. This is only the second of these tiles that I can recall seeing and although being purchased several, perhaps many, years apart I believe from the same original installation. The high relief is further accentuated by the most brilliant glazes. A really excellent tile and a really excellent example of the art of majolica.

Verso very clean, fairly typical plain bar grip pattern, no markings.

 

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 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.
