Arts & Crafts Printed Tile

• Style: Arts & crafts
• Technique: Patent printing
• Maker: H & R Johnson*
• Dimensions: 3" x 6"
• Date: circa 1910


A very full design in the arts & crafts manner printed in bright pastel colours. A fascinating tile, I've seen few similar. Perhaps based on a similar looking George Marsden 19th century patent which appears to be printing in multicolour in a single process, the patent would almost certainly have expired when this was made anyway. I have seen similar on Maw & Co. and Godwin & Thynne tiles, perhaps all used the process or perhaps another company bought in plain tiles to decorate for they are all overglaze decorated.

It has been suggested that they may be stencilled, I don't believe so. Having had more than one example of two different designs I have had the opportunity to compare and they do no exhibit telltale signs of stencilling. There were other printed tles made in the 19th century not least by Mintons and Maw which rather well resemble stencilled decoration.

Versos perfectly clean, some embossed with the patent number for Johnson's lock back.
