A good gothic, puginesque enamelled majolica tile quite a rarity and I can't recall seeing this design before. Tough, dense buff clay with opaque enamels as Michael Hollins developed when managing the rile making for Minton & Co.

When Robert Minton Taylor (who was trained by Michael Hollins) and Colin Campbell split from Hollins Campbell copied the printed and a few hand painted tiles from Hollins under the Mintons brand, Robert Taylor took on the encaustics and other techniques that Mintons Ltd apparently didn't want to do. Campbell was the owner of Mintons Ltd and was clearly instrumental in the establishment of Robert Minton Taylor's tile company for soon it was renamed The Cambell Brick & Tile Co and shortly afterwards became the Campbell Tile Co.

Verso very clean but some stain from mortar, embossed The Campbell Brick & Tile Co, Stoke on trent and compass points badge.
