Roses in Vase Majolica
Price: £75 (approx $92)
One very tiny rim chip, minute rim
chips/roughness couple light scratches, light wear

Technique: Embossed majolica
Maker: Gibbons Hinton
Dimensions: 6" x 6"

A great tile from Gibbons Hinton &
Co. of Stourbridge, the only Black Country tile
maker of great repute. Seen on the catalogue
sheet reproduced in Austwick in another
colourway amidst art nouveau and classical
designs. This I would say more renaissance than
anything else although with perhaps some sense
of the art nouveau style. The ribbons have a
sure art nouveau feel to them, the flowers
similar to glasgow roses and the vase shape
would pass for art nouveau in context. Lovely
quality manufacture, superb glazes and well
preserved in the passing of time.
Verso clean, embossed pattern number.
