An excellent design with strong contrasting colours and brilliant glaze, Sunflowers climbing a trellis, somewhat incongruous so maybe the flowers are sunflower-like.

This is a thicker body like Mintons' half inch thick 'hearth quality' which was much used by Norfolk Iron Works (Barnard, Bishop and Barnards) for their cast iron fireplaces. Mintons supplied them with unnamed tiles, as this is, there is no doubt it is Mintons however may be OEM by Campbell who made many of Mintons' tiles.

The design, albeit to the other hand, was also made by Steele & Wood, click here for an example in an unusual 'woodblock style'. They also made the design in more traditional colourings, including similar to this Mintons, and many dealers attribute them to Mintons. It is not possible to say if either company originated the design indeed it is likely both used the same source in an art book or art journal, despite its great reputation Mintons in the late 19th century was well known for copying designs and was criticised for its lack of design prowess.

Versos very clean, unmarked offset grid.
