A fabulous tube line tile in matt glazes made as an art pottery tile. Really rare glazes even for matt having a texture not unlike Ruskin pottery. Wonderful colours including mauve, purple and a mid grey background, all unusual colours as is the white tube lining. Matt glazes on tiles are mostly associated with the 1920s onwards however we see a few that are for sure edwardian and Maws were reported to be working on them in the last few years of the nineteenth century. The pattern number suggests an introduction date of 1909 - 1910, Wade's in common with other manufacturers continued to use some edwardian designs in to the 1930s however mostly moulded designs as they already had the dies, tube line designs were usually only made for one or two seasons.

Wade is a highly collectable company for their advertising and other pottery and whimsies, cute figures that they started making in 1953, Wade collectors are mostly unaware that the company were making art tiles of the highest quality with super designs and in amazing colours around the turn of the century. So excellent are their tiles that I rate them in the top five art nouveau majolica tile makers easily besting better known names like Pilkington and Minton. Wade tiles bear the brand name 'Flaxman' occasionally and as with many manufacturers their back markings have subtle but distinct identifiable details.

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.
