An incredible tile from this most excellent of tile makers, in my top five although the name not well knwon outside of specialist tile collectors, a lovely, lively design in the aesthetic taste with gothic influences in bright earth tones. At first glaze appears to be an excellent block print but the pattern is made of clays inlaid in to the base clay, a demanding and expensive process, rarely found glazed. Glazed tiles unsuitable for flooring these were almost exclusively used for hearths the glazed surface being easy to clean and the semi-vitrified clay body almost impervious to moisture, thicker than standard tiles and rather heavy. Great for use as a paperweight, trivet or mug stand, very toughm durable tiles.

Versos very clean, impressed Craven Dunnill, Jackfield Nr Ironbridge Salop and pattern number.
