A fabulous natural study design of a Peacock butterfly and flowering branch block printed in black and painted with colours. One of a set of six butterflies, early tiles from the 1870s and representing the state of the art in brightly coloured wall tiles.

Verso very clean, usual embossed Minton Hollins etc with printed registration mark recorded in the National Archives as seen below, the registration refers to the border pattern as was usual.

Excellent condition, some tiny chips/flakes to the rim and minor surface marks. This from my personal collection and the best example seen in a couple of decades. The design also and more frequently found in six inches even so still a challenge to find one in good condition or better.
