A pretty floral design in a rococo border transfer printed in mid brown and tinted with three colours.

Verso a great example of Boote's rare lock back three versions of which were created but they are very rarely seen. Very effective at their task of locking the tiles to the adhesive so few tiles are recovered but more importantly the lock back caused problems in production. This and similar edge locks by Richards and Meakin which also are rarely seen caused weakening of the tiles and made firing cracks, sagging and other manufacturing and handling flaws too common. Most interesting to find an example of a failed technology in such great condition.
