A highly stylised art nouveau yet arts & crafts influenced design in the manner of the Vienna Secessionists. Highly stylised floral decoration the outline in a brown stain apparently painted through a stencil and filled with hand colouring in silver lustre.*

The manufacture of lustrewares was an unpredictable process relying on a reaction between the atmosphere in the kiln and the painted stain which results in a brilliant metallic sheen that is literally on the very surface.

A difficult process with dramatic results means such tiles were highly prized and highly priced, an interesting comparison of prices can be gained from a Maw & Co price list dating from the 1890s.

  • Plain coloured tiles 4d - 4.5d each
  • Relief tiles 6.5d - 7d each
  • Walter Crane designs 6.5d each
  • Lustre tiles 56d each

The unit of currency in 1890 is pennies, old pennies - 240 to the pound!

* Silver lustre is so-called because the element that makes the colour is silver, the effect however is of gold.
