Pair of Print & Tint Bird Tiles by Ollivant

Style: Nature study
Technique: Print & Tint
Maker: Henry Ollivant
Dimensions: 6" x 6"x 2
Date: circa 1895


A lovely pair of nature study tiles of birds, berries and blossom by Henry Ollivant of Cliffe Vale in Stoke on Trent, a mid-size tilemaker who produced excellent art tiles. Printed in dark brown and painted with an array of soft colours and brilliantly glazed. When buying fireplaces in the Midlands in the 1970s, 80s and 90s we saw quite a few of these likely because William Fieldhouse a major Birmingham ironfounder was a reseller of Ollivant's tiles, now we see them much less frequently. The designs appear with stronger colours too but these softer colours are seen from time to time if less often, so clearly not a flaw but a design choice.

Versos with C.O.V. printed and pattern number, one very smoke stained, one very clean.
