Art Nouveau Cuerda Seca Tile

• Style/technique: Art Nouveau cuerda seca
• Manufacturer: Sherwin & Cotton
• Dimensions: 3" x 6"
• Date: circa 1908

A stylised floral design having a somewhat gothic feel made with the rarely used Cuerda Seca technique. The technique uses a painted outline but differs from other methods in that the medium for the line was oil rather than water based. The oily line resisted the water based glazes and helped to keep the colours well defined. The outline's profile is usually lower than in tube line decoration indeed the glazes may be thicker than the outline.

Verso very clean, embossed Sherwin trade mark etc, painted pattern number.

Very fine condition just some rubbing to the green where the glaze is thickest.

• Condition: Very fine

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 220 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format and on screen is about the size as it would be in real life at the same distance. 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.
