A very rare and quite early tile from Carter, the pattern uncommon but this is the first tile from them seen in the print and majolica glazes technique. The technique produces a dramatically different effect from underglaze or overglaze tinting for the colours have great brilliance. As glazes run the colouring has to be in blocks or larger areas but whilst colour detail may be sacrificed the print detail is not.

This technique in the nineteenth century mostly associated with George Marsden and most often seen with Wedgwood patterns, this may have been made for Carter by Marsden. Carter made few if any wall tiles until a few years in to the twentieth century although they may have decorated bought in blanks in the pottery in common with other pottery manufacturers of the times.

Verso fairy clean, some smoke stain, pattern and design registration numbers printed the latter almost illegible.
