A great detailed pastoral view of a working farmyard engraved by William Wise for Mintons, from the popular Animal of the Farm series printed in dark brown on white. This one of if not the rarest tile from the series quite why I fail to understand for horses are usual popular themes, the most often found tiles from the series tend to be the highland cattle and sheep. Perhaps in the 19th century this scene rather reminded people too much of the exertions of working the farm.

Verso very clean embossed Mintons etc.
