Five chips to the high relief, one very small the others tiny, very minor wear/chipping to the rim, slight touches of rubbing to high points, minor marks for such a dramatic tile.

Carter art nouveau tiles are quite rare and they do tend to be rather stylish. This a dramatic floral design in high relief one of the highest of all art nouveau tiles. Just two colours, I've only seen a few of this design and all either one or two colours. Not often coming to market, I'm sure not too many were sold due to the full design and high relief restricting places where it could be used for example it woiuldn't sit well in most fireplace or washstand frames. Also such high relief takes away from one of the import aspects of wall tiling, ease of cleaning and durability, and then of course there is the high price for these were expensive tiles.

So quite a rarity, you have to have held one to appreciate it and a great tile for collectors of the more unusual art nouveau designs.

Verso very clean, impressed pattern as face to ensure consistent thickness of clay.
