A super quartered aesthetic design with alternating hanging flowers and tessellated squares very well engraved and printed in steely-blue on white. Based upon a design sold by Morris & Co which is illustrated in William Morris Tiles by Richard and Hillary Myers on page 118. The accompanying description is:

Figure 205, - 'Tulips & Chequers'.

Dutch, Ravesteijn pattern 441 (1872-74); in glaze blue on 5-inch tiles. 'Tulips & Chequers' was a late nineteenth-century (probably Dutch) design which achieved a popularity with the firm's own designs, here it is mixed in a fireplace with Dutch versions of Morris's Scroll tiles.

Pattern number 2240 indicates an introduction date of early 1888. This design appears on sheet 32 in the catalogue in what appears to be the same colour and is described as 'Blue on White', on the same page are two other blues, 'Electric' and 'Turquoise'.

Versos quite clean embossed Mintons etc and badge.
