These are superb tiles, the design seen from time to time but this group having the most amazing glazes, richly translucent and with great warmth. The design of the triple tulip genre has been seen in several colourways, typical greens and yellows, pastel colours including with turquoise and mauve, even monochrome, this is colourway number 2 so it was likely designed with these colours in mind.

It is not just the glaze colours but the overpainting of the raised outline, something that Richards did occasionally which few others did, the reason is to prevent the bright white of the outline detracting from the glazes. Some tiles have heavy outlines that have been created with little thought for the appearance rather seeking to overcome the problem of glaze spills and are only really suited to decorating in light colours therefore avoiding the contrast. This is the reason why the great majority of tubeline tiles use stained slip for the outline so it fades to the background and allows the glze colours to dominate.

The line painting treatment of these creates an arts and crafts effect the stain unable to precisely follow the raised line and making each tile more of a unique object.

Versos very clean, embossed England and design registration number, stamped pattern number.
