A most colourful and excellent art nouveau tile. First time I can recall seeing this and my first reaction was wow, and still is. Amazing colours, at least six, rich and brilliant. Superb moulding, great style suggestive of the Hindu style of decoration.

Lea & Boulton were a tremendous company, described as shadowy by a well known tile historian but I think that title best applied to a couple of other manufacturers whose wares are distinctive but who were so well in the shadows that we don't know what their names are! Fabulous wares from Lea & Boulton, in the styles of the times, the worked from premises called The Art Tileries which tells how they viewed their role. Superior to the cheap mass produced decorative tiles of the likes of Boote and Rhodes, more akin to Ollivant and even Maw.

These chequer style designs amongst the last favoured by collectors, understandably so for big bold designs are preferred, they were not priced differently to other majolica tile in their day and were chosen for the qualities of design and colour and this has both.

Verso very clean, embossed L. B. T. and England, pattern number painted in glaze.
