Mintons Japanesque Transfer Print 8x8 Tile


Style: Aesthetic Japanesque
• Technique: Transfer print
Maker: Minton's
Dimensions: 8" x 8"
Date: 1872 (circa)


Fabulous and rarely found japanesque tile printed in dark brown on a good white body. More Christopher Dresser than most of the designs attributed to him but he didn't design any tiles, at least for Minton, or Mintons, maybe Linthorpe. With a fan in the foreground, decorated with carnations and butterfly, set against a petaled background, below two stylised ducks against a key pattern with rising sun borders to the sides. All nicely printed in crisp dark brown, a bright and interesting tile to display.

An early Minton's tile with the apostrophe between the n and the s, the company was known as Mintons from 1873. Shown in the Mintons catalogue in blue and white as pattern number 1503, they usually gave different pattern numbers to different colours.

Verso very clean, embossed Minton's etc and badge.
