An outstanding art nouveau design of tulips in a very erect and stylised form reminiscent of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (this came from Glasgow too). Moulded in very high relief and with the impressed pattern verso, sign of a quality tile, made to ensure constant thickness of clay and improve durability. Few companies made such high relief tiles they were a technical challenge but the effect is superb especially with brilliant glazing as this.

But perhaps the outstanding feature of this tile is the skill of the modeller for it is both precise and having great flow of the line. The symmetry is almost perfect - truly a demanding skill, the mould was fashioned by a truly skilled and artistic individual. The skill of the kilnmaster should not be overlooked for the near perfect glazing really gives the relief its definition. The glaze is consistent with the relief all over, no pooling where there should not be, brighter where it should be on the high relief and richer where it is indented.

Verso some minor remnants of mortar, embossed number (not a pattern number).
