An excellent, full art nouveau floral design very lively and rather abstract, in a good range of natural colours. Corn Brothers produced well over a thousand designs most of them art nouveau, very few were registered, vanishingly few are found tubelined.

Corn Brothers associated with a Frederick Newbrook who was likely a designer, I have been unable to find out anything about him and would appreciate any input.

One of only five tubeline registered designs I have seen, two by Boote, one of which apparently a factory sample, the design seen a few times subsequently on 3" x 6" and 2" x 6" tiles but never with the registration number. There is a 6" x 6" tubeline design by Marsden and a pair of five tile panels by Bellison a merchant from Twickenham. No doubt there are others but they are of course very rare.

Verso very clean, unmarked. I have an example in my collection with a stamped registration number and typical 'C' marks verso, quite why this is unmarked is a mystery however the execution is very similar apparently by the same hand.
