rim, few light surface marks, perfectly clean.

One of a series of six tiles illustrating
cavalry or at least horseman and based upon
dutch delft designs. Minton Hollins made them in
five inch versions too, the standard size for
dutch tiles. A brilliant white body and soft but
in no way weak blue print, quite unusual
colouring for a tile.
Verso embossed Minton Hollins etc, perfectly
clean, slight clay loss from removal from
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.
The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430
pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format.
Customers may request a larger 120 dpi image also
in maximum quality JPEG format for closer
inspection which will be sent by email.
