Mintons Bacchanalian Putti Embossed Majolica 12x6 Tile

Style: Classical renaissance
Technique: Embossed majolica
Maker: Mintons
Dimensions: 12" x 6"
Date: 1890 (date mark)


A hand moulded embossed tile (or plaque) featuring a group of bacchanalian putti with a satyr harvesting grapes and goat. Hand moulded, (pressed in to the mould by hand) and finished in an rich blue glaze. Seen on the embossed tile sheet in the Mintons' catalogue which dates from 1891/2 as part of a mantel set. Rarely found, horizontal tiles of this size are a fraction of the number of vertical which were most used either side in fireplace cheeks. The putto on the left has cloven hoofs suggesting he will grow in to a satyr, it is most unusual to see putti as satyrs to be in any art form.

Verso very clean, impressed Mintons, date mark and factory marks.

Due to the high relief and brilliant glaze it is a challenge to achieve a good image due to the reflections from the glazed relief, the above image is a scan and most colour accurate, the below image is a photo in natural light from an overcast sky.
