A most superb floral tile made for the ironfounders R W Crosthwaite and made by Sherwin & Cotton the design registered by Sherwin & Cotton probably on behalf of Crosthwaite who registered designs for themselves some of which also made by Sherwins. Sherwins embossed Staffordshire knot mark is seen verso and printed the ironfounders initials and pattern and registration numbers.

Celdon clay body, according to a 1905 pricelist this was nearly double the price of white, it was more durable and resisted crazing of the glaze. Printed in warm brown and painted with six colours the flowers highlighted in opaque white to lift against the celadon ground. A really super quality tile and it shows in the beauty of the finished item.

Verso Sherwins embossed Staffordshire knot mark and printed the ironfounders initials and pattern and registration numbers.


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.
