Chip bottom left corner. Perfectly clean, richly coloured and high brilliance glaze.


Style: Floral
Technique: Print & tint
Manufacturer: W Wood & Co
Dimensions: 6" x 6"
Date: circa 1890


An unusual floral tile in that the background is filled with pattern presumably to resemble a lace curtain, a few designs with such treatment are noted including those both with and without, apparently one of Marsden's patents was for a method of achieving such an effect. So a full and fussy design quite what one expects of victoriana but even so few designs were so full.

Nicely printed and glazed, decorated in good colours including rich burgundy and bright blue. With the background and complex, frilly border quite a challenge for the engraver and well executed.

The company's tiles when marked bear the name W Wood & Co even though they appear to have moved to and be using the name New Wharf Pottery as a brand for some wares. A long established pottery family being noted for wares as early as 1750, their 4 x 5 grid grip pattern is apparently unique and a good identifier of their wares.

Verso a little smoke stain, unmarked.
