A group of tiles from an uncommon series of twelve known as 'Female Heads' but perhaps a more descriptive title would be better. The subjects appear to be women of different nationalities and the fruit or flowers behind them may have significance too perhaps also nationalities or seasons, perhaps "Maidens of the World' may be more apt. Printed in a super bright blue on good white bodies this blue from Minton Hollins I think consistently the best on tile, one would have thought a pottery and tile maker such as Wedgwood or Mintons Ltd would be best at blue and white but Minton Hollins produced the best colour and Maw the sharpest good blue printing.

Versos very clean, usual legend.
