Humorous Print & Tint Hunting Bird Tiles

A group of tiles from an uncommon series presumably of twelve but I'm not sure that I've seen that many, but there were sets of many quantities including several sets of seven. Perhaps also made in eight inch versions for very similar are found occasionally. A curious series featuring birds in rather unusual and at times undignified poses, printed in brown and tinted in bright colours on strong buff clay bodies. Humour can often be seen in tile designs especially with animals, there's a series apprently of mischevious dogs and Lockett remarks that hunting scenes are often humorous, perhaps this series combines the two. A great decorative series anyway, fun and interesting pictures and bright colours.

We have seven and a duplicate:

  1. A pigeon (?) looking over its shoulder at a fly.
  2. A bird about to ctach a fly
  3. A heron (?) drying itself after a failed catch?
  4. A bird scanning the horizon for prey.
  5. A kingfisher with its catch
  6. A kingfisher with its catch
  7. A heron (?) failing to make a catch
  8. A bird flying head-on at the viewer.

Versos very clean, unmarked Malkin grip pattern.
