A flowing floral design with a large bold flowerhead on an unusual mottled mid brown background and with a dusky pink flower.

This design is illustrated in Austwick on page 69 where it is attributed to Pilkington, this tile is marked Flaxman as are other examples we have seen and have never seen it with Pilkington markings. There are some similarities with a few Pilkington tile designs of around 1895 but also of other makers' designs of the era too, see this tile by Mintons.

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.
