A design seen from time to time, not before in this colourway by me and it is a super colourway mostly earth tones but fresh and bright with highly translucent glazes. Other tiles in the group had painted pattern numbers indicating this the fourteenth colourway, I think I've seen two or three and those pale backgrounds and generally weaker colours. A palmette layout design in what I guess is best called renaissance style, great for collectors of majolica and Mintons yet still collectors of art nouveau may appreciate it.

Interesting verso, a Campbells grip pattern modified to Mintons. The erased circular mark where Campbell's compass badge is found, the embossed letters L found on Mintons tiles. The association between the two companies continued well after Campbell's death in 1885, The Campbell Tile Co manufactured the more difficult tiles, Mintons despite its great reputation rarely made anything complicated mostly only doing surface decoration.

Verso perfectly clean, offset grid, embossed L in opposing corners, pattern number written in glaze.
