A nice 19th century floral design, quite a popular design. The manufacturer is unknown, other designs by the company are known including a few other that were quite popular and others seen less frequently.

The tile has an interesting feature, a firing flaw one of the greatest I have seen. Not immediately obvious and the tile may not even have been sold as a second, just right of centre bottom edge a shirnkage flaw can be seen and traced up to just past the middle of the tile. Whilst rather long on the surface it is of no thhreat, it doesn't penetrate the thickness of the tile at all and is sealed with glaze.

Interesting things factory flaws for the convey a sense of the conditions at the time and the constraints of the processes. I don't hold with the notion that chips and stains add character or charm but manufacturing flaws can ocassionally contribute adding to the interest and understanding and can be discussion points.
