One from what I consider to be one of the best printed pictorial series of tiles, just six in the series representing country life. A scene of a young man and young woman, apparently heading off to market, chatting at the gate. Incredible detail, beautifully executed engraving and printing. The series has a fine art quality in the engraving which is lacking in the more popular Mintons and Wedgwood series indeed Maw's printing is the finest of all the major tile manufacturers.

Owen Gibbons trained at the South Kensington School of Art and was for a time curator of the Royal Architectural Museum, Westminter, London before becoming head of the Coalbrookdale School of Art in Shropshire. Whilst there he designed a number of tiles for Maw & Co. He was also a principle in the company of Gibbons Hinton & Co established by his brother Francis Gibbons in the mid-1880s.

Verso very clean, embossed Maw, Broseley, Floreat Salopia badge etc.
