What a striking example of the art of design at the time. The tile designed for friezes with alternating floral and foliate subjects the floral design in particular being most expressive of the bleeding edge of design at the time (so of course we should say 'in the manner of Christopher Dresser').

A rarely found design indeed almost all Maw & Co. designs can be said to be rare for along with Minton, Hollins & Co. and Woolliscroft the largest proportion of their market was precisely made tiles for walls and rather too expensive for most of the fireplace/furniture market. This is even rarer due to the colour of the clay, turquoise clay is not often found, it is a beautiful colour but limited in application for interior design use. A considerably more expensive clay than usual white or buff the most prolific user of the material was T G & F Booth makers of tiles especially for the fireplace market.

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