Very minor damage but a few manufacturing flaws.


Style: Neo-gothic
• Technique: Print & stencil?
• Manufacturer: Marsden*
• Dimensions: 6" x 6"
• Date: circa 1885 


Rather a bold design, carries some impact, decorated in earth colours. Not quite sure how decorated, looks to be block printed with further stencilling. The glaze is unusual too, rather a silky feel to it, semi matt/silk glazes were around in the 1880s but rarely used. Some manufacturing flaws mostly glaze flaws, and it looks like someone set a plate on it after decorating but before firing for there is a part circular mark which looks like the rim of a plate.

The clay body is interesting too, has a Marsden grip pattern verso but one the supplied to other companies for decoratng such as Doulton & Co, The Decorative Art Tile Co, Elijah Birch etc so unlikely decorated by Marsden and could be one of many. Half inch thick hearth quality, I can't recall seeing the grip pattern on this thickness, verso very clean.
