Top right tile chip would be hidden in a traditional cast iron fireplace or within the rebate of a standard frame, even in a visible position readily disguised with stained grout, (grout should always be stained to approximate to the background colour of the surrounding tiles). Very minimal damages would be visible when fixed, some light staining in the crazing near the edges, minor losses to the rim and paint. All marks are relatively minor and add credibility in a period setting. A superb pair of tile panels well suited to a most refined period room.



• Style: Classical (Queen Anne)
• Technique: Outline printed and painted
• Maker: Mintons
• Dimensions: 6" x 30" per panel
• Date: 1891/92 (introduced)

 

An excellent and rare pair of classical printed and painted panels in dainty, fresh colours with a superb quality of painting. This design in two-colour, 'chocolate and gold', was popular indeed it was reproduced by Acquisitions of London and also by ourselves. We also found a coloured pair of panels, the only complete set seen prior to these, some thirty years later, which we installed in a house as I recall in York Road, Harborne, Birmingham, England in the late 1980s. We reproduced the coloured panels and sold maybe a two or three dozen from shops in Birmingham and Worcester. So these are very rare, I have seen two complete sets in 40 years, plus two incomplete sets.

They were very expensive tiles, even more expensive than embossed majolica tile panels from Mintons. Mintons did not do hand painting of tiles as a standard in the tileworks, painting was done in the china works or studio rather than the tileworks. Almost all Mintons' tiles are mechanically decorated, transfer printed, block printed, litho printed or monochrome embossed as if the company did not want to cannibalise the sales of hand decorated wares from its studio.

Versos clean, embossed Mintons etc.
