What an excellent floral design, quite rarely seen, and of unusual style. The complex aesthetic motifs in the corners leave a cross shaped cartouche which is near filled by the flower which has a most unusual style.

Leaves, stems and flower have a very slim plain border to them, leaves have several different bold patterns, and the seed pods are also very highly stylised. This style of artwork bears similarities to some noted on some french tiles and some by Brown, Westhead Moore who presumably sold in to the french marketplace as their tiles have been noted with the french equivalent of copyright printed verso. This may be possibly be by Brown, Westhead Moore but there are many other possible candidates too.

An incredibly difficult tile to manufacture, most noticable the skill required of the painter to paint the outline around the flower and it is very finely done. Also with the print going right up to the edge of the tile and a regular border of dots and square corner motifs the size of the tile blank needed to be almost a perfect match for the size of the print which had to be applied precisely square.

Verso some staining from original installation in a fireplace, generic grid, unmarked.
