A most excellent art nouveau design with super sinuous curves and perfectly straight lines as required. A detailed and finely modelled flowerhead at once stands out as incongruous yet blends in to the whole, also well indented so that as required the glaze pools to a richer hue. Sometimes found in multicolour, even as many as six colours including red and blues, yet in many ways a monochrome highly trasnlucent glaze is best. With this a super 'old gold' translucent glaze this tile is an example of the émaux ombrants technique, very smooth almost flat surface yet good contrast, the smooth surface making for easy cleaning and less liable to wear and damage.

A really useful design, a repeating design that works well all ways, in horizontal friezes, vertical panels, areas of wall tiling and just as well as a single or framed design. Simple, light designs demand quality and this has it.

Verso slightly stained, embossed England and registration number.
