An excellent design, eclectic almost bizarre, printed in chocolate brown and tinted with two colours. Full of japanoiserie elements, the fan decorated with flora and fauna with a small cluster of well stylised roundels, set against a background of geometric hatching and with multiple borders.

The design registered to Wm Micklethwait ironfounders from Rotheram who had designs made for them by several major tilemakers of the times, this their first from the spring of 1884 and very rarely found. Their designs, the few that are known, are often adventurous, no doubt they bought many tiles from the ordinary stock of suppliers and it seems that they supplimented with more diverse designs.

Verso perfectly clean, printed registration and pattern numbers, typical grid pattern of Booth's.


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.
