One of this series of views tiles engraved by L T Swetnam around 1885, this of a boatbuilder's cottage in the shadow of Criccieth Castle in Wales. Good to see this scene in colour the texture of the engraving not so clear in the unpainted print the roadway perhaps appearing to be a small river.

One of the more popular landscape series still not so easy to collect the full set, that is in the usual print colours of dark brown and indian blue, coloured examples of the series are very rarely found. Research indicates that hand coloured Mintons tiles were three to four tilmes the price of their ordinary prints which goes some way to explain the rarity. Of all Minton tiles these are the ones we find most often originally framed as art objects rather than fitted in to fireplaces, washstands etc or on walls.

Verso very clean, embossed Mintons etc.
