A very light, bright gothic design in the manner of AW N Pugin with a characteristic simple three way flower. Creamy background, tan for the raised lines, super deep mauve for the flowers, rich green and then dabs of brown and pink near the rim. super colours overall and great gloss finish. A substantial tile half an inch thick and semi-vitrified buff clay.

Campbell had to rename his Minton Brick & Tile works in 1875 by order of the court and so he did to Campbell Brick & Tile works. Shortly afterwards the 'Brick &' was dropped and this tile dates from that period as can readily be seen by the legend verso. Campbell was the owner of Mintons Ltd the famous pottery company which made wall tiles only and he clearly wanted to use the Minton name for floor tiles (his middle name was Minton) to compete with his second cousin Michael Hollins the owner of Minton Hollins & Co the tile specialist who carried forward the heritage of Herbert Minton's experimentation with and introduction of machine made tiles in the early 19th century.

Verso a little mortar residue in recesses otherwise perfectly clean impressed The Campbell Tile Coy etc and trade mark..
