A rather mysterious tile the first time I believe I have seen it. Quite a busy moulded outline yet almost all in two shades of taupe but having six other colours, that's a lot of colours. It is quite bizarre to see such a full design so lightly coloured, there must be a dozen ways of painting it each presenting a quite different view. Even more remarkable that this is colourway A, the first colourway, that's really bizarre, first colourways are usually popular greens and yellows. Maybe an experimental design, Léon Solon testing the boundaries, it may have been the difficulty of painting that restriced its use, I can see it being tricky to paint requiring great attention from the painters and being prone to error. Facsinating stuff, we only bought one and I suspect I may never see another.

Verso clear of adhesive, some smoke stain, embossed Mintons etc, painted pattern number.
