A great design with high relief impressed and embossed, opulent and bold epitomising the sense of 19th century majolica wares. Creamy white foliage against a dark green cartouche with turquoise backgroundnthe acanthus style foliage taking precedence over the floar aspects of the design. All rather OTT, the kind of tiles found adorning walls in inns and theatres around the turn of the century, rarely found as most tiles affixed to walls disappear with the building unlike tiles in furniture which more often are preserved.

A little forgiveness required for the condition which nevertheless is way better than most especially tiles with high relief, so bold and dramatic that a little forgiveness is easily found for the high relief and brilliant glazes are captivating.

Verso very clean, unmarked but distinctive grip pattern
