A good tile from a quite rarely found series of six tiles entitled Venus & Adonis this being Adonis with horse. Most often found in just the print various colourways have beeen seen each perhaps one could call eccentiric, this with a textured sky rare and making an excellent backdrop. An early series from Minton Hollins & Co pattern numbers 341 - 346.

On a semi-vitrified buff clay body and apparently pressed in the press usually used for enamelled majolica tile so marginally undersize but thatwas pretty much standard for many manufacturers.

Verso some smoke stain otherwise clean, usual legend embossed.
