Finely Painted Pair of Nature Study Bird Tiles

Style: Nature study
Technique: Hand painted
Maker: Robert Minton Taylor
Dimensions: 6" x 6"x 2
Date: circa 1875


A lovely pair of nature study tiles of birds painted in red and brown, a colourway which presents well and was used quite often by arts and crafts tile decorators, not as popular as blue and 'gold' but presenting a crisper image. Nice quality painting, unusual colours and perfect condition makes for a rare and interesting pair of tiles.

Possibly by Minton's Art Pottery Studio Kensington Gore which used Robert Minton Taylor blanks from time to time, Robert Minton Taylor and Colin Minton Campbell (the owner of Mintons Ltd and Minton's Kensington Studio) were former junior partners in Minton, Hollins & Co., had a trading association following the dissolution of the partnership with Hollins, and later Campbell was directly involved in Taylor's company it being renamed the Campbell Tile Co.

The artist may be John Eyre, not only a skilled painter but also foreman of Minton's Kensington Art Pottery, similar tiles have been seen with the initials JE.

Versos near perfectly clean embossed Robert Minton Taylor, Tile Works, Fenton, Near Stoke upon Trent.
