A quite wonderful and early tile, from the Watteau series in a super shade of blue on a clear white body. The series so named being in the rococo style of Jean-Antoine Watteau was pattern number 12 for Minton & Co. Very rare to find this series marked Minton Hollins, the earlier Prosser's patent marked Minton & Co (also made by Minton Hollins) are more often found and most are Mintons Ltd copies from the 1870s and 80s. Lovely quality and lovely condition too, this would almost pass for new.

Verso very clean, embossed Minton Hollins & Co etc and with seven round and two bead-shaped holes familiar from Prosser's patent tiles. Made shortly after the patent expired in 1854 and before the holes were abandoned. When this was made Minton Hollins & Co was the tile making division of Minton & Co, see The Minton Tile Companies for an explanation of the history of the tile companies.
