Pair of Print & Tint Bird Tiles by Ollivant

Style: Nature study
Technique: Print & Tint
Manufacturer: Henry Ollivant
Dimensions: 6" x 6"x 2
Date: circa 1895


A lovely pair of nature study tiles of birds, berries and blossom by Henry Ollivant of Cliffe Vale in Stoke on Trent, a mid-size tilemaker who produced excellent art tiles. Printed in dark brown and painted with an array of bright colours and brilliantly glazed. On a very soft blue clay body the first time seen, light blue ('turquoise') clay bodies are seen from time to time especially by Booth's but this the first time for Ollivant and the first time this particularly soft blue. When buying fireplaces in the Midlands in the 1970s, 80s and 90s we saw quite a few of these patterns apparently because Ollivant was formerly partner in a Birmingham building company, this probably the nicest pair I have seen.

Versos unmarked, very clean.
