• Manufacturer: J & W Wade*
• Dimensions: 6" x 6"

This is a fabulously stylish and well executed tile. An unusual genre, aesthetic design had pretty much run its course by the tile that majolica technology was well distributed and affordable. Stylised flowerheads, impressed geometrically correct lines reminiscent of celtic and oriental themes and all most brilliantly glazed.

Just three of these were bought many years ago and not been seen since for sure and I can't recall before. One with a big chunk off a corner will end up on eBay, one has found a place in the permanent collection, this the only good example to be offered for sale.

Verso very clean, embossed Flaxman and painted pattern number.


The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format, 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.
