An unusual large aesthetic majolica tile, few
eight inch tiles are majolica most being prints
and hand painted. The pattern determined as
being introduced in summer 1890 by virtue of the
pattern number which can be seen on the
additional sheet in the reprinted '1885' Mintons
Verso embossed Mintons etc, reddish stain
(mahogany furniture stain).
Occasional rim and surface chips but none too
large, glaze surface is excellent and
* The reprinted Mintons Ltd catalogue widely
described as 1885 is slightly earlier likely
1883 or possibly 1884. The additional sheets of
embossed tiles are of later date 1891 for the
first sheet and 1892 the second sheet.
