Several tiny chips to the rim barely exceeding the outer buff band, near perfect surface.


 

Style: Aesthetic
Technique: Glazed 3-D encaustic
Manufacturer: Craven Dunnill & Co
Dimensions: 6" x 6"
Date: 1878 (design registered)

 

An amazing encaustic tile finely decorated with a charming aesthetic floral design. A rare example from this fabulous company, true tile specialists using a wide range of manufacturing and decorating techniques most all of super quality. A most heavy tile weighing over 2lbs, more than double regular tiles, almost an inch thick with a strong layer of heavy red clay sandwiched between buff, the colours in inlaid clay. Remarkably with a three dimensional finish, quite how they achieved this on an encaustic tile is a mystery to me, the colours recessed in the buff at different levels.

Verso very clean, unusually impressed "Nr Ironbridge" together with design registration mark, also impressed presumably a pattern number with further unexplained group of numbers.
