An excellent example of the art of design, aesthetic japonaiserie at its best. One of a series of six 6x6 designs, relatively uncommon (Maw's quality priced them out of the mass market). Designed by Owen Gibbons in 1881.

Owen Gibbons trained at the South Kensington School of Art and was for a time curator of the Royal Architectural Museum, Westminter, London before becoming head of the Coalbrookdale School of Art in Shropshire. Whilst there he designed a number of tiles for Maw & Co. He was also a principle in the company of Gibbons Hinton & Co established by his brother Francis Gibbons in the mid-1880s.

Verso very clean, embossed Maw, Broseley, Floreat Salopia badge etc.
