A very pretty floral tile of an iris within an aesthetic border. This tile appears to be made by the unusual process where the design was left on the transfer paper rather than being transferred to the clay, then glazed over so that when it was fired the colours migrate in to the glaze rather than adhere to the clay. The technique which produces a soft and naive effect was also used by Wm de Morgan and Sherwin & Cotton. Made near the peak of the Art Nouveau period it is clear that aesthetic influenced floral design was alive and well.


Condition: Very good

Price: £55 (approx $77)

Ref: 01861D

Slice chip top left corner, tiny chip bottom left corner, one tiny and about half a dozen minute stun marks to the surface and other very light surface marks. A bright and cheerful tile.

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format.

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.
