An excellent example of the styles of the times an aesthetic movement interpretation of nature in circular vignettes with sun motifs and floral borders in a super shade of blue on a good white body, this the half an inch thick 'hearth quality' body.

John Bradburn was a prolific and respected designer producing many of Minton Hollins most popular designs of this period and then many more for Maw & Co for another twenty years or so. His name not so well recognised because whilst being freelance in his early years the bulk of his career was spent with Maw & Co, and he concentrated on his design work rather than writing books about it and seeking media attention.

Around the same time E. W. Godwin and R. Edis produced designs for Minton, Hollins & Co., both better known than Bradburn their designs were considerably less popular. It seems counter-intuitive but the story is repeated so often, the lionised designers' works were far less well received than the designs of (relatively) unknown artists. It is best to simply appreciate art for what it is rather than because other people, media people, say that it is more worthy because it is attributed to a particular known self-marketeer.

Verso very clean, embossed Minton, Hollins etc, indistinct registration lozenge.
