A rare design, not very rare for I have seen a couple before, but very interesting. Primarily designed for a wall tile to be arranged in brick pattern, an arrangement preferred by Lewis Day for it gives a sense of solidity to large scale applications however when in brick pattern the 'V' at top centre is coloured in green to make the continuity of the design. It appears that Pilkington's made both colourways deliberately, this came from furniture, presumably a washstand, and so the white 'V' is more appropriate.

It may well be a Lewis Day design for the records are incomplete, it kind of depends on whether you view it as art nouveau, which Day loathed, or a conventionalised floral design which he excelled in.

Verso very clean, some minor clay loss and pencil markings (calculations!)..
