A most excellent art nouveau design with super sinuous curves and perfectly straight lines as required. A really useful design, a repeating design that works well all ways, in horizontal friezes, vertical panels, areas of wall tiling and just as well as a single or framed design. Simple, light designs demand quality and this has it.

The detailed and finely modelled flowerhead at once stands out as incongruous yet blends in to the whole, well indented so that where required the glaze pools to a richer hue. The smooth almost flat surface is well modelled to create great contrast, whilst the smooth surface makes for easy cleaning and is less liable to wear and damage.

I've seen probably half a dozen monchrome colours and half a dozen painted colourways, monochrome colours would number in the dozens, this is colourway number fourteen. It's pretty certain that I've seen less than 20% of the variations of the design, the scale of tile making of the times is difficult to get one's head around so massive was the variety of output.

Verso near perfectly clean, embossed England, painted pattern number.
