A lovely barbotine floral tile of narcissus flower and bud delicately and sensitively decorated. This was one of the more popular designs for we see it occasionally but this slightly creamy and rather thick glaze is unusual, it and these type of barbotine tiles in general are most often found with a honey colour glaze.

Barbotine tiles do not show well on screen perhaps due to the excellence of the glaze the effect of which only carries when seen in real life, it was only Sherwin & Cotton who made any substantial amount of them and this may well have been due to their superior glazes. They were very expensive tiles around double the price of majolica and three to four times the price of tinted prints.

Verso very clean, incised pattern number, Sherwins Patent and badge embossed (very faint).
