A good art nouveau design with a bold flowerhead and decorated in natural earth tones. The tile stands well and quite impressively as an individual objét d'art yet it is a drop-repeat design creating a brick pattern style arrangement. There is actually two designs on the tile one occupying the centreground the other divided in to four and at the corners. Very interesting as a design study, and as a matter of interest master decorative tilemakers Craven Dunnill also made it.

Many companies produced similar designs, they look well as individual tiles or in friezes or panels in washstands and fireplaces but were primarily designed for walls where a mass of them would be most impressive. So quite rarely seen for collectors and this a good example. Given the intent for wall covering rather than feature tile the style not as bold as the most extreme art nouveau designs but still quite dramatic.

Verso very clean, embossed 'P' in opposing corners.
