A very pleasing Arts & Crafts barbotine design which fills the tile. Natural earth tones and a colour textured background combine to create a warm and friendly tile.

The body is of buff clay plastic clay and a little thicker than usual, verso has the Sherwin & Cotton Staffordshire Knot mark with the pattern number B107 incised. This clay appears to be proper fireclay rather than the usual clay used for early barbotine tiles, Sherwin & Cotton certainly made tiles from fireclay including tube line art nouveau.

Barbotine means decorated with slips in this case the slips quite thickly applied to create a three dimensional 'inpasto' effect.
