This is a real rarity, a really great tile from Pilkington not attributed to a known designer. A dramatic scene of flamingoes in flight against a sun (or moon) with clouds floating by and glazed in an excellent shade of translucent blue. Super quality artwork, modelling and pressing. Designed by Cosmo Rowe in 1893 the group being the only tiles deigned by him for Pilkington although there is a Rowe recorded as having painted for Wedgwood.

From a set apparently purpose designed for fireplaces there being a matching 6" x 3" waterscape and pair of 6" x 12" scenes of flamingoes in a lake and in flight. In my opinion the best Pilkington tiles of the genre that I have seen, rare to find.

Verso very slightly grubby, 'P's in opposing corners.

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.

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format. Customers may request a larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format for closer inspection which will be sent by email.
