A pleasing gothic influenced aesthetic design nicely printed in chocolate brown on turquoise clay. A great colourway in my opinion, I really like the turquoise although it does rather limit some other colours. By Jackson Brothers not much about whom is know, it appears that they made tiles for most of the 1880s. This is unusual for them being turquoise clay, it is also the thicker hearth quality body, half an inch thick.

Turquoise clay tiles are uncommon but are mostly superb, most we see from Booth's, they may have made this biscuit for Jackson Bros, often with white enamel decoration lifting flowerheads and the like from the background.

Joan Jones, former curator of the Minton Museum, reports that in an 1891 pricelist one colour prints on ordinary clay bodies were 3/6 per dozen, on tiurquoise clay 4/6 per dozen, the extra cost of thicker biscuit is not known but likely around 25%. Of course those are Mintons' price not Jackson Brothers but similar applies to other manufacturers of the time.

Versos very clean printed registration number (faint).
