An excellent secessionist design that fills the tile unusually with impressed outlines and glazed in superb colours with turquoise leaves and not immediately obvious mauve at the top of the flower. The impressed effect is quite different creating a darker outline rather than lighter as with embossed outline, the preference for a darker outline is well illustrated by the majority of tubeline tiles have a coloured, usually brown or green, slip ouline. I have only seen the design three, perhaps four times and it was a while before a positive manufacturer idenrification could be made.

Another similar is found but with raised outline by Mintons and T. A. Simpson however having a less detailed pattern lacking the dots around the flowerhead and some detail of the leaves. The Simpson example is almost universally called Mintons despite the lines and patten numbers being different, they even appear side by side in a book both attributed to Mintons.

Verso perfectly clean, unmarked save for painted pattern number.
