A most unusual and fascinating design of finely printed predominently roundels of sea vegetables (seaweed) in a most appropriate green-grey colour. Really stylish and most unusual subject matter. The verso is completely smooth, no grip pattern but I have no doubt that it dates from the late 19th century, it had varnish around the edge from the original furniture and the engineering is of the time.

I've seen completely smooth backs from a number of companies, certainly Maw and Marsden, and they were typically made for fitting in to jardineres, pot stands and furniture. If I was to hazard a guess I would think Marsden is the most likely, forever innovation and risk-taking in design.

Verso unmarked.
