Style: Art nouveau
Technique: Embossed majolica
Dimensions: 3" x 6"
Date: 1905 (circa)
The well known peacock art nouveau tile from
Mintons, the design also seen in 6x6 but to my
eye looks better as a 3x6. Thie time the colours
differing from the most popularly found examples
with brown background and on a strong white clay
rather than the more friable oatmeal clay. The
background in a pleasing mid brown serves well
to emphasise the pattern and rather better than
the more usual white ground.
Versos very clean though slightly stained,
embossed Mintons etc.
