A superb and early gothic style tile by Minton Hollins & Co almost inevitably designed by A W N Pugin who had a strong relationship with Herbert Minton and Michael Hollins, the latter was director of the tileworks from 1840. In Pugins light and bright interpretation of gothic style but uncharacteristically in black on white, a good solid black and brilliant white combine to make a dramatic tile. Mostly we see Pugin's tile work in bright and cheery colours rather different to the present day association of gothic and this is a great exception to the norm.

This design in the same colourway appears in Art Nouveau Tiles by Hans Van Lemmen and Bart Veebrugge where it is described as "Block Printed tile designed by Christopher Dresser for Minton's [sic] China Works, Stoke-on-Trent, around 1880". It is not by Dresser, there is no record of him designing any tiles and a plethora of evidence suggesting that he did not.

Verso perfectly clean embossed Minton Hollins etc.
