A very rare tile from Corn Brothers, I call it 'Alien Landscape' you make your own judgment. This one from a group I bought over 30 years ago and from the collection of someone I shared a market stall with, I recall seeing just one in the meantime but in too poor condition to contemplate buying. I think it is fabulous, quirky, indicative of the freedom of artists to experiment enabled by the extravagence of the art nouveau period, the kind of design I'd more expect from George Marsden. Love to see it in Marsden-like glazes but I won't hold my breath.

Verso a bit grubby, embossed C in opposing corners. Handwritten in pencil notes from the original retailer/wholesaler, "3 yds in stock 6x6" and "seconds", the latter most surprising for it is better manufacturing quality than the majority of tiles of the period, maybe it was a showroom display piece and the notes referred to what was available for sale.
