Maker: Rhodes Tile Co.
Dimensions: 6" x 6"

A superb example of the styles, techniques of the mid edwardian era. Designed right at the peak of art nouveau yet not art nouveau style rather more literal any perceived styling due mostly to the limitations of the technique. Such is the nature of the genre despite they're being almost inevitably described as art nouveau when examples of the style are seen in transfer print, especially monochrome, it becomes more clear. Other pictorial/figural styles were on the wane and somehow the dutch took over!

This particular series of five is not quite rare but definitely elusive, especially in great condition. Similar designs were produced in print, tubeline (esp notable being Charlotte Rhead), print and majolica glaze, and handpainted but I can't recall seeing any bas relief, which is interesting.

Verso very clean, embossed England and registration number.
