A pretty floral tile design in stencilled slips of quite remarkable bright pink colouring for the process, to achieve such colours in clay, fired to the temperatures of clay rather than the temperature of glaze being a phenomenal achievement. Still now well over a century later pink glazes are problematic as a friend who was having some tiles reproduced nearby for a project advised.

On a rare Marsden's Patent blank with lace pattern impressed, not the usual plain lace mesh pattern but a paisley pattern, similar to Doulton & Slater's later patent found on plastic clay pottery sometimes marketed as 'Chine' ware however Marsden's Patent was over three years earlier. Further enamel and gilt decoration. Substantially made by Marsden and finished in Doulton's Lambeth Studio.

Verso perfectly clean embossed Doulton & Co, Lambeth, London and patent, painted pattern number and artist's (gilder's) initials MD.
