An excellent floral design from Lewis Day and great manufacturing the outline created with the sensitivity of an artist with feel in the weight quite different to Pilkington's first 'cloisonné' floral designs. Fresh and bright with lovely movement and lightness of touch this is a great design.

Often called art nouveau or sometimes arts & crafts but I rather think it is a straightforward botanical representation albeit of the utmost quality and not or barely even conventionalised (arranged to best suit the mediaum of representation). Lewis Day famously loathed art nouveau although it can be difficult for anyone to remain detached from the trends so quite possibly Day subliminally took on board some of the sensibilities of designs of the times.

Versos near perfectly clean some slight staining, some minor clay loss from pearl glue, embossed P in opposing corners and design registration number.
