A rare transfer printed art nouveau tile with a geometric four repeat design. A very full and bold design, no spare space left on the tile the design takes it all In a very bold shade of green with a good range of tones. On a Boote blank but maybe not decorated by them, Boote sold blanks widely and this may be decorated by another The Decorative Art Tile Co and Stubbs & Hodgart are possibles who used Boote's blanks.

Art nouveau printed tiles are uncommon but a great aid to the understanding of the style. Most art nouveau tiles being in lead-glaze majolica which developed almost in synchronisation with the style so the two can get confused. In the simpler print we here see clearly the flow of the line and the extreme styling of the flowers being very abstract and with only the merest hint of botanical likeness.

Verso very clean, typical Boote grid, embossed England.
