A portrait of the famous Australian Archbishop Carr. Well moulded in high relief with an olive green glaze on a buff clay body.

This must have been made by a quality manufacturer, my inclination is to suggest Craven Dunnill but if so I am surprised it is not marked. It could also been a local Australian tile maker.

Condition: Perfect

Ref: 01660

Mark top left corner is an underglaze factory fault.

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.
