• Style/technique: Art nouveau majolica
• Manufacturer: Henry Richards
• Dimensions: 6" x 6"
• Date: circa 1907


Super art nouveau design of a poppy, strong and bold and yet suggestive of music, in rich glazes. Very cleverly assymetric, the background moulding resembling crotchets diffuses the assymetry of the poppy and produces a well balanced tile. Excellent design work, who did the designs for Richards is unknown but they surely employed some very skilled artists.

The design was registered late in 1906 but was reissued in the 1930s, this is an earlier example from 1907 - 1909.

Verso very clean England and registration number embossed.


The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format and on screen is about the size as it would be in real life at the same distance. 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.
