An excellent and most stylish art nouveau design that fills the tile, a repeating design but the repeat is unobtrusive and it works superbly well as a single tile. The uniquely stylised central poppy type flower in almost triangular form has a kind of Egyptian feel, the side whiplash style leaves look like serpents and the intertwining stems at the base are reminiscent of celtic style. On top of all that in the plainer areas of background there are indented trefoil or clover type motifs, it is a fascinating design. Undoubtably intended for single colour glazing as the moulding is very subtle without raised outline or channel around the elements, in this single colour it has real presence. I have seen some in multicolour but the colours spread and looked quite messy, especially the edges of the relief.

Verso spotlessly clean, some embossed 'AM' but they aren't the usually Meakin (or later Johnson style), these are earlier, faint rubber stamped design registration number.
