Very small chip bottom edge, couple very tiny, couple minute rim chips, couple very tiny shallow surface chips, other very minor marks.


Style: Gothic
• Technique: Embossed majolica
Maker: Leeds Art Pottery*
Dimensions: 6" x 6"
Date: 1895 (circa)


A most wonderful embossed tile in the gothic style and with a pleasing mustard-hue glaze. Exceptional quality of modelling and pressing, crisp edges and perfect symmetry. Unmarked but characteristic of the output of the Leeds potteries likely Burmantoft's or Leeds Art Pottery. Combed grips suggesting made from plastic clay but the grips may have been incised in dust-pressed clay before firing, in any case an outstanding quality piece.

Verso very clean, combed grips.

Update: this design in a different colour appears on page 12 and the back cover of 'Burmantofts decorative tiles for interiors' published by the Tiles & Architectural Ceramics Society.
