A most singular tile, one for the connoisseur, of individual style and manufacture.

The style a kind of neo neo-classical examples of which are rarely found. Born in the midst of the art nouveau era of extreme experimentation in design when classical design served as a refuge for those of more traditional taste this one of the boldest and outrageous examples of the mix I have seen on tile. Love the colour too, a most unusual emerald green set against a brilliant white ground.

Brilliant white for it is porcelain, it is extremely rare to find porcelain tiles other than those by Copeland. And dust pressed porcelain, another rarity and thicker than usual close to the half inch 'hearth quality' standard. Booths didn't use the common, porous white clay mostly they used a semi-vitrfied pale buff but also celadon, pale blue and olive. All these clays resisted crazing of the glazes and it seems they afforded more brilliant glazes too.

So a rare style, a rare colour, rare body, in all a very rare tile.

Verso very clean, printed pattern number.
