A few minor edge and surface marks, whire mark

Style/technique: Pictorial print &
A view entitled 'Old Cloisters, Rouen', they
being attached to the ancient
cathedral having quite an eventful history.
A nicely detailed engraving printed in dark
brown and painted underglaze.
Quite similar to the 'Views' series from
Mintons China Works especially the "Old
Houses Rouen" view the series engraved by L
T Swetnam. This view also appears in the Mintons
catalogue however this tile is not by Mintons
indeed is unattributed and the manufacturer
almost certainly copied it from the same source
as Mintons. Picture books were widely used as
source materials for pictures on ceramics and
when signed for example by Wise and Swetnam
usually indicates that they were engravers
rather than creative artists.
This and the companion
tile were centrepieces in a cast iron
Verso unmarked generic bars, the die has been
modified a central circle for a badge has been
filled in. Possibly Ollivant,
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.
The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430
pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format.
Customers may request a larger 120 dpi image also
in maximum quality PNg format for closer inspection
which will be sent by email.
