A good interesting tile the design the most popular of all the transfer printed and tinted tiles of the era much less often found in majolica. The flower colours quite similar to the printed version, bright and cheerful colours, but set against a brown background rather than white. The deep yet warm brown and gold and red to the leaves would have reflected the firelight wounderfully.

It is interesting to see the development of styles and techniques, as majolica became popular few transfer printed designs were able to cross over the fine line detail impossible to replicate in majolica and so new design styles developed to accomodate the technique. This tile made about ten years after the design registration, it is not known when majolica versions were first made.

Verso very clean, the company's registered design grip pattern, embossed England and design registration nmber.
