A rare group of Mintons' printed tiles the design not previously seen by me although it appears in the catalogue on sheet 39. An excellent full persian style design in unusual colours for the style predominantly tan and yellow with minimal turquoise.

The printing is excellent, state of the art for 1890 and even today would present somewhat of a challenge for underglaze ceramic printers. Very ambitious with tiny turquoise dots for the centre of the flowers yet they are placed with near perfect precision. The tiles would be impossible to produce by any other means, painting would require the precision skills of a fine art painter and each tile could take as long as a day to complete.

I doubt the pattern will ever be seen in more typical persian colours with blues ranging from cobalt to light turquoise and greens for they tend to flow in to the glaze more than these likely iron oxide based yellow and tan colours.

Versos very clean, unmarked, registration number printed on edges.
