Of a short-lived genre and so rarely found this mosaic printed design is one of the earliest being registered in January 1881. Most we see are by Mintons and block printed this is hand coloured and the only design I have seen by Sherwin & Cotton. Gothic in style as most are presumably following on from the pseudo mosaic floor tiles made by various companies of the times (Maw's had an ingenious patented process).

Verso very clean generic rails printed pattern number and design registration lozenge.


The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format, 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.
