A highly stylised floral design probably a poppy and another flower block printed. This from the Léon Solon period at Mintons, two years before he became art director, to my mind their greatest era, and with the sense of arts & crafts movement style and secessionist precursor to art nouveau. A rare and super shade of blue, close to cornflower blue, and the design and print cleverly done to suggest hand decoration, overglaze printed likely because this shade of blue could not withstand the temperature ot glost firing.

Verso embossed England, printed pattern number and design registration number, a Campbell's blank, it is not uncommon to find a Mintons design on a Campbell blank.
