Very tiny chips top corners, dark spot right hat rim a manufacturing flaw, only the very slightest of rubbing, amazing surface condition for such a high relief tile.


• Style: Portrait
• Technique: Mooulded majolica
• Maker: J & W Wade*
• Dimensions: 6" x 6"
• Date: circa 1890



An unusual potrait of a fisherman, there are few portraits of working people on C19th tiles, embossed in very high relief and finished with a tan translucent glaze.

Illustrated in 20th Century Decorative Tiles and attributed to George Woolliscroft & Son but this has a 5x5 grid grip pattern verso not associated with Woolliscroft. I remain unconvinced by the Woolliscroft potrrait and figural majolica attributions and think Wade more likely for this tile, the 5x5 grip pattern is found on Wade's embossed majolica tiles.
