Set of Ten
Art Nouveau Floral
- Style/technique: Art Nouveau
- Manufacturer: Corn
- Pattern number:
- Dimensions: 6" x
- Date: circa 1905
A good bold design with a large flowerhead, lots of
petals, maybe a virulent poppy. Stylised art nouveau but
still with victorian floral attributes, a precursor
design to full blown art nouveau. High relief and good
bright colours especially the turquoise flowerhead, the
background isn't a typical clear glaze it is milk white.
Probably designed around 1900 - 1902 we have a 1905
catalogue in which the pattern is shown.
These were removed from a wall but unusually in a low
traffic domestic environment, a bathroom in an edwardian
house. Being in high relief it is most unusual to find a
set with such excellent glaze condition.
Price for ten: £400 (approx $840)
One tile has a chip bottom edge, two have a chip on the
top edge, very few minor surface marks and manufacturing
flaws, A few other tiny edge chips and minor surface marks,
a little light staining in the crazing. Very clean tiles
that display excellently and with really excellent
brilliance in the glazes.
