A few very tiny > minute rim chips, surface perfect apart from a few very light scratches only seen when held just so to catch them in the light. Very pretty and most brilliantly glazed.

A fabulous and rare Thomas Elsley arts & crafts tile. Made in Holland to a design by Elsley, hand made and hand painted four fabulous colours. Very crisp and bright, excellent precise work and indeed far superior to the dutch imports for Morris & Co. The colours quite reminiscent of iznik style designs but the design very english arts & crafts.

Many tiles are attributed to Elsley but few can be verified this is one of just three designs he registered and bears the pattern number and design registration number. Thomas Elsley was an ironmonger of great repute working from premises at 32 Great Portland St. London.

Verso very clean just slight mortar residue, plain in the dutch manner, pattern number and design registration number boldly stencilled.


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.
