A well known but all too uncommon design from Mintons this example in an unusual colourway predominently earth tones with a sage green body and black butterfly. The design often attributed to Christopher Dresser but investigations found no evidence to support this indeed there is no record of Dresser designing any tiles and plenty of evidence that he didn't.

The National Archives has the following note attached to the design registration. "This design has elements which are inspired by Dr Christopher Dresser. Much work has still to be done to distinguish between Dresser's personal work and that of anonymous designers trained by Dresser or inspired by his work."

Small chip top right corner, very small chip bottom edge, other very minor marks.

Verso embossed Mintons etc, printed design registration lozenge.
