Two tiny rim chips, very tiny > minute flake chips/roughness to the rim, surface very near perfect.


Style/technique: Aesthetic bird print
Manufacturer: Craven Dunnill
Dimensions: 6" x 6"
Date: circa 1885


Magnificent design of a diving swallow set against a climbing wild rose both bursting from a stylised aesthetic border with hatching and stylised flowerhead corner blocks all executed in the arts and crafts movement style of a medieval woodblock print. A very full and complex work of art executed with a great degree of skill. A seriously excellent tile combining two very difficult and on the surface irreconcilable aims, naturalism and style. I love this in brown on buff and never expected to like a blue and white tile as much but this is a superb rich blue and really most appealling.

A fabulous design, equal to those of major named designers (dare I say it better than many), Craven Dunnill were an excellent company though not as prolific as Maw & Co situated just a few hundred yards away they deserve the title of artistic tile makers for the range and quality of their decorative wares.

Verso very clean, embossed Craven Dunnill etc.
