This is quite fascinating, an aesthetic design on a trellis layout with stylised sunbursts to the corners and a paterae to the centre, see it as a transfer print and it would be absolutely clear but it is in majolica and of art nouveau period so that may confuse but there really is no art nouveau in it. Registered in 1904, I have a few dozen designs registered for that year all apart from one other blatant art nouveau, even Pilkingtons had discovered art nouveau by this time, 1904 was when art nouveau really was big time mainstream still building up to the 1905 peak.

I guess therefore not surprising that a design not often seen even though I can see it working well in large areas, maybe it was used a lot on walls which have been demolished and less often in furniture and fireplaces. Admittedly not the most decorative tile but it has its qualities and style and it is interesting to place it in the design timeline.

Verso near perfectly clean embossed England and design registration number.



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.
