A super quality tile designed by the famous Carron Company and made by T G & F Booth. The design sums up the sense of victoriana of its time, classical, japanesque and vaguely gothic elements blended to make a pleasing and uncontroversial design.

The Carron Company were the world's largest ironfounders in the Carron Valley near Glasgow presumably stockists of Booth's tiles they registered a number of designs made for them by Booth. They quite rarely come to market for although Carron was a massive company they were only one of many and so the market for their tile designs was more limited than for the general run of tilemakers designs. Booth were one of the largest decorative tile makers and made special designs for several of the more notable ironfounders, their pale buff clay was resistant to expansion with damp and thence crazing of the overlying glaze.

Versos almost perfectly clean, printed Carron Company, design and pattern numbers.
