This is a curious design, quite abstract and in a fun kind of way, so abstract that it is difficult to name a style. Made by one of the Corn Bros companies so one can say art nouveau I guess and on their own biscuit with embossed marks so not one of their earliest. Charming tulip like flowers at the centre of each edge, stylised shapes at the corners perhaps seed pods. Printed in brown and painted with three bright colours. Maybe a rare design for I can't recall seeing it before, with the patterns going right to the edges not suited for fireplaces and most furniture and so unlikely to be often found.

Verso some stain from mortar otherwise clean, embossed C in opposing corners.



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.
