Enamel loss at the bottom left corner motif and petal top centre, two very tiny chips bottom edge. Perfectly clean, no crazing and most brilliantly glazed.



 

An excellent and early aesthetic or 'arts & crafts movement' design, maybe a touch of gothic in there too. Great bold sunflower at the centre in a ring of leaves and further hatched and 'spidery' textured areas. On a sage body, printed in rich blue, coloured with mustard and with highlights enamelled in bright white, four colours and each acheived by different means.

At first look a fairly ordinary tile but it draws you in to reveal the complexity that makes the end result which is to say the least dramatic. Fabulous for its introduction date of 1881, quite frankly not much really innovative and demonstrative was going on then and there were few manufacturers. The backplate for this group of tiles shows reserves for the pattern numbers they used on majolica tiles so these presumed to have been made around 1890.

Coloured clay tiles often have more brightness and contrast than white clay tiles for the white clay is never as white as enamel white which was often used on coloured clay tiles. Celadon and pale blue and the most used colours for decorative tiles still they are uncommon and an interesting theme to collect. The clay was better quality, denser and more durable and therefore less likely to have crazing of the glaze.

Sherwin & Cotton were the premier art tile specialist of the late 19thC, vastly underestimated (people think that Wm de Morgan & Co were good!), fabulous tiles, innovative techniques, some unmatched by any other contemporarily or subsequently.

Versos perfectly clean, printed registration mark and pattern number.
