Quite a rarity, certainly I haven't seen this particular tile before, but also for a variety of reasons. The subject matter, the flora and fauna of a pond is not so common, fits in with the arts & crrafts movement love of such things but of course usually found on flat tiles, painted and occasionally printed and then perhaps tinted. The added cost of tooling to make as an industrial moulded tile, industrial not in the least perjorative for the required skills and technology was far greater than an artist and some stains, very likely exceeded the deamnd in the marketplace. Then by Steele & Wood who did a super range of printed and at times tilnted tiles including super picture series but their majolica tiles are few and far between and frankly often not very good.

A fabulous tile, well designed, modelled and moulded, super turquoisy glaze in the tremblay technique - deliberately thinner on the high points to give contrast to the colours, there is no surface wear, it is precisely as intended.

Verso near perfectly clean, naot named but with subtle distinctive marks of the company.
