Small chip top right corner, some other very slight damage to the rim. Touches of rubbing to high points on the enamels, some bubbles in the darker blue which is also not as glossy as the other colours apparently the kiln temperature being just a little too high for it.


• Style/technique: Arts & crafts floral enamelled
• Manufacturer: Maw & Co
• Dimensions: 6" x 6"
• Date: circa 1875



A very rare arts & crafts majolica tile enamel painted with the cuerda seca technique made by Maw & Co at their Benthall works in Broseley.

A superb arts & crafts design of climbing flowers in superb colours, not only a fine work of art but a superb technical achievement for it's time. To achieve the precision first a very fine oil based outline in brown was applied which restricted the flow of the waterbased enamel glazes when they were painted, and they do conform exceedingly well to the line. There are eight enamel colours, quite phenomenal, four greens, two blues, tan and white, the buff clay body serves as the background the matt finish contrasting the glossy enamels.

Dating from around 1875, could be a decade either way, Maws were fuly operational at their new Jackfield works by 1885.

Verso near perfectly clean, embossed Maw & Co, Benthall Works, Broseley, Salop.
