A superb example of traditional majolica, opaque glazes on a coloured clay body. Six enamel colours is a good number, the black enamel is rare. The design is more often found in more typical colours.

These are very durable tiles such that they were quite frequently used in exterior walls, they are some of the best quality tiles ever made and cost a small fortune in their day.

The pattern number 157 is from the first few years of tile making by Herbert Minton, possibly as early as 1835. Of course it would then have been made as encaustic rather than majolica and probably only in two or three colours. It is taken that the 'M' suffix to the pattern number refers to majolica.

Versos very clean, some smoke stain, embossed Minton & Co., Stoke on Trent.
