A nicely painted tile of a waterscape in handpainted in blue on an off white body. The theme of long-legged waterbirds was well established in the late 19thC and is found on tiles from time to time typically in transfer prints. This is most unusual in the style of the artwork having a distinct impressionist feel, there is no attempt to paint almost every individual feather as one may find on fine line transfer prints rather the artist creates the impression, and a clear impression too, with swift movement of the brush.

Verso very clean, embossed Minton Hollins etc, painted pattern number - and incorrect pattern number crossed out! This is likely decorated at a specialist studio rather than at Minton Hollins works.


 

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format and on screen is about the size as it would be in real life at the same distance. A larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format can be forwarded by email if required.

The image is a little oversize rather than cropped close to the edges so that the edges can easily be seen and any chips etc can be quickly spotted. Other marks described are usually not visible at all when the tile is viewed straight as one normally sees it and can only be seen with a critical eye when the tile is tilted to catch imperfections in reflected light. For more details of how we describe marks see Condition.
