A wonderful tile from Corn Brothers, wildly asymmetric but without losing a sense of balance not that often seen and then in more typical colours. Super two shades of blue for the flower, vibrant green for the leaves and a wonderful dark tan background. Has a nice arts & crafts feel with slightly bleeding glazes and intensely crazed, the glazes exceptionally brilliant.

I've only seen one group of these tiles, two fireplaces from the same house had six apiece with bands, ten went in to a fireplace on Alcester Road South in Birmigham, one in my collection, this in to the collection of a friend now returned to me. That was mid 1980s, I haven't seen another in the meanwhile.

Verso very clean no marks.
