Couple inisgnificant marks to the glaze. Some high points of the intersections of the tubeline are worn which appears to be deliberate in manufacture.

• Dimensions: 6" x 6"
• Date: 1910 (circa)



A most rare and fabulous tile from this major company more associated with technical excellence in tile manufacture than with art tiles. This tile, and its companion, bear a feature unique in my experience, the background has a cartouche painted in textured slip over which the tubeline and glazes are overlaid.

The icing on the cake is the fabulous glazes, the background turquoise is simply outstanding both in colour and brilliance, the dark blue ad green have a mottled effect which appears greater than that which would be achieved solely by the background texture.

There were just two of these in the original installation, plus two similar 3x6 and 36 plain 3x3 with the same brilliant turquoise glaze. The plains could be used in combination with this to make a panel.

 Verso very clean, embossed Minton, Hollins etc.
