An ugly sister dolled up to meet Prince Charming from the series of tiles depicting scenes from the Cinderella story printed in a nice warm brown on a pale buff clay. This is similar clay to that used by Booth for their 'glaze that does not craze' this also not crazed due to the semi-vitrified nature of the clay.

Malkin were a great tile company, widely unrecognised but superb tilemakers. They started making tiles in 1866 and were one of the few tiles makers to stay in business for over a century finally falling in to the hands of Johnsons (who else) in 1968. They did super quality designs and manufacturing quality throughout all the eras, more picture series than are generally known about and some excellent art nouveau tiles.

Verso very clean, Malkin's well known offset grid and centre ring, unmarked.

 

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format and on screen is about the size as it would be in real life at the same distance. 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.
