Maker: Minton Hollins
8" x 8"
Date: 1889 (design
Price: £180 (approx $290)
A superb and quite rare tile from Minton
Hollins, lovely quality moulding and painting,
bright colours and brilliant glazes. Eight inch
majolica tiles are rather rare especially the
lead glazed majolica rather than the earlier
opaque glazed (enamelled) majolica and this is
an excellent example of its type.
Verso very clean embossed Minton Hollins etc,
stamped registration number which may be the
wrong one a registration from two years later in
1891 seems to decribe the pattern more
One very small rim chip, other tiny
chips/losses to the rim and to the surface near
the rim but for the most part surface condition
is near perfect.
