Seasons Transfer Printed Tile by Malkin
  • Style/technique: Pictorial print
  • Manufacturer: Malkin Tiles
  • Dimensions: 6" x 6"
  • Date: circa 1885


One of an excellent series of four seasons by Malkin, very difficult to find these, I had three for many years and waited at least a decade to complete my group. Excellent artistry, clear yet substantive, nice colouring in dark brown on ivory. Each season has a rhyme around the corners, this:

Summer joies
Flowers for hopes
Graine golden ripe
Of hopes ye type

Malkin did many fabulous tiles in the popular printed and majolica processes for most of the victorian era and through the edwardian era until well in to the 20thC. Their sports series is well appreciated and sought after, this small series I like just as much.

Verso slightly grubby but no adhesive residue, unmarked but characteristic pattern.

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.
