Style/technique: Aesthetic print
Made for: R W Crosthwaite
Dimensions: 6" x 6"
Date: design registered 1895

 

A stylised shell motif is the most prominent feature of this design with classical ribbons and an inverted devil's fork or trident beneath, further basketweave hatching to corners. I don't know if the design has any particular symbolism but overall it is excellent, well suited for iron firaplces and a good bold design anyway.

R W Crosthwaite was a major ironfoundry in Thornaby on Tees who had tiles made by several of the notable C19th tile manufacturers but only those who made good tiles. This appears to be by Ollivant who is known to have made designs for another foundry, others have been seen made for them by Sherwin & Cotton. As exclusives to this company they are quite rarely found in the market today.

Verso apparently by Ollivant, bears printed pattern number and design registration number (Ollivant pattern and Crosthwaite registration).

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.
