A very rare tile from this famous company painted in barbotine creating gentle relief, in the arts & crafts 'all over' style of floral decoration. Opaque slips to mask the coloured clay, finished with a brilliant traslucent glaze. On a heavy light brown clay body, slightly variegated and nearly half an inch thick weighing almost double a typical tile of the period.

Versos very clean, embossed Mintons China Works Stoke upon Trent. This grip pattern of rails with triangle corners most similar to that of Steele & Wood yet still quite different, Steele & Wood's in turn often mistaken for Wedgwood. I've never seen this verso previously and believe that Campbell Tile Co. made it for Mintons, both companies were owned by Colin Minton Campbell and there are a few interactions between the companies visible in their wares.
