A very full design in the arts & crafts
manner printed in bright pastel colours. A
fascinating tile, I've seen few similar. Perhaps
a variation of a similar George Marsden 19th
century patent which appears to be printing in
multicolour in a single process, the patent
would likely have expired when this was made
anyway. I have seen similar on Maw & Co and
Godwin & Thynne tiles, parahps all used the
process or perhaps another company bought in
plain tiles to decorated for they are all
Versos perfectly clean, some embossed wit the
patent number for Johnson's lock back.

A little roughness to the tip of the rim top
