A most rare and interesting tile, printed twice in puce and majolica glazed with a pale green translucent glaze. Highly stylised flower and buds perhaps between carnations and honeysuckle framed by borders and corner motifs of fans.

Wiltshaw & Robinson tiles are rarely found and they seem to all have been made for them by Marsden being transfer prints and barbotine stencil. In addition this is a rare patent process, so rare that it is the first example that I have seen. The tile is marked 'Patent' verso, the patent also issued in 1890 refers to a second print in the form of a mesh or 'lace' overlying the first floral print, a number of floral pattern were 'aestheticised' with new printing plates adding a lace effect and Marsden patented a method for so doing on existing designs. Also on the clean verso is the W & R swallow stamp, the design registration number is printed on one edge.
