Affection, a rare and excellent tile from this series of Rustic Humours by Mintons China Works. Tiles from the series come to market infrequently but this is a first for I can not recall seeing a two colour version before here the branch borders are painted with a yellow-gold adding considerably to the enjoyment for such a simple feature.

Verso very clean, but with some blue stain as if it contacted another transfer print etc, embossed Mintons etc. Written in pencil in the script style of the day the pattern number and the price of one shilling


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.
