A superb picture tile with a pastoral scene of a shepherd boys relaxing one playing a pipe printed in a really nice shade of blue on a bright white body

These tiles are seen infrequently and are often attributed to Woolliscroft but I have note been able to verify indeed records of Woolliscroft's production are virtually non-existent.

Verso near perfectly clean, unmarked with a grid style grip pattern and central reserve.


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.
