A wonderful gothic-moderne tile, fairly complex and slightly fussy, stylistically a development of Pugin's more complex designs, I'm sure he would have been impressed and designed similar had he been around at the time with access to the brilliant glazes. By Lea & Boulton who worked from The Art Tileries in Tunstall, makers of fabulous tiles in the edwardian era, this I think quite possibly their best, I can't think of another with such fabulous colours.

Almost by accident I started to collect this genre, lead glazed gothic designs, I found I had a handful in my collection of art nouveau majolica tiles and really liked them so looked out for more. But it is a rare genre and they are hard to come by, one can't call it neo-gothic for that name is already taken, so I suggest gothic-moderne. Most always a fusion of gothic with the styles prevalent when lead glaze technology advanced to brilliance and a wide range of colours, art nouveau and victoriana especially the edwardian progression of victoriana.

Verso near perfectly clean just a little grubbiness, embossed L . T England. and painted pattern number.
