A magnificent design of a diving swallow set against a climbing wild rose both bursting from a stylised aesthetic border with hatching and stylised flowerhead corner blocks all executed in the arts and crafts movement style of a medieval woodblock print.

A very full and complex work of art executed with a great degree of skill. A seriously excellent tile combining two very difficult and on the surface irreconcilable aims, naturalism and style, this would be in my personal collection except that I have one already.

A fabulous design, equal to those of major named designers (dare I say it better than many), Craven Dunnill were an excellent company though not as prolific as Maw & Co situated just a few hundred yards away they deserve the title of artistic tile makers for the range and quality of their decorative wares.

Verso very clean just a little smoke stain. embossed Craven Dunnill etc.
