A great and rare pair of tiles forming a frieze clearly designed for ecclesiastical situations and so rarely found in the marketplace. Featuring ravens atop gothic floliage and the latin inscription Providebit Dominus - the Lord will provide, all within typical Pugin-style floral borders.

Pattern number 1321 in the Mintons catalogue, the introduction states that all gothic designs therein are by Pugin, whilst Pugin was long since dead in 1873 when Mintons registered the design the Mintons catalogue shows other designs which they registered and which were copied from Pugin's books. Mintons also copied other designs from books by Christopher Dresser and many others indeed in the nineteenth century Mintons was widely criticised for its lack of innovation in design being more of a copier than a leader. Such is now mostly forgotten for the company has brought us designs which may otherwise have been denied to us.

Very fine condition indeed minor manufacturing flaws are perhaps more obvious, couple very tiny, few minute rim chips, surfaces very near perfect. 

Versos very clean embossed Minton's etc, printed registration mark.
