'Front de Boeuf Extorting Silver From Isaac the Jew', from a rarely found series designed by Thomas Allen the subjects taken from the novel Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott. Nicely printed in deep brown on ivory body. Unusual ethnic mix in this image although stereotypical and politically incorrect it is quite different to the usual anglo-scottish meme. Ivanhoe was a controversial novel in which Scott drew attention to racial tensions in post-Norman Conquest England. Two drawings of the series taken from the Wedgwood pattern book are shown in Lockett on page 142.

Verso is marked 'Josiah Wedgwood & Sons Etruria'.

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format. A larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format can be forwarded by email if required.

The image is a little oversize rather than cropped close to the edges so that the edges can easily be seen and any chips etc can be quickly spotted. Other marks described are usually not visible at all when the tile is viewed straight as one normally sees it and can only be seen with a critical eye when the tile is tilted to catch imperfections in reflected light. For more details of how we describe marks see Condition.
