A bold design crossing the boundaries of greek and persian styles, the focus a stylised acanthus/palmette motif in predominently persian colours surrounded by conventionalised quarter flowerhead motifs in the corners which would combine when arranges en masse.

There's something of a conundrum in dating this Maw & Co. tile with a 19thC persian style pattern for it bears Made in England verso. The design no doubt dates from the 1870s/80s but it seems strange that it appears with Made in England verso which apparently was only used by Maw & Co. from the 1920s (however was in use from 1890). It does seem incongruous that such an old design was made so many years later, perhaps it was made for a renovation project.

Verso very clean, embossed Maw & Co., made in England.

Perfect rim, minor surface marks.
