A rare art nouveau design from Maw & Co light and bright with red roses and rich green foliage against a soft aqua background.

Maw & Co were the greatest tile company in the world ever, the name not so well recognised in the antiques trade for the pottery companies leveraged their pottery reputation. Whilst most tiles that come to market originate from fireplaces and furniture Maw's tiles were mostly affixed to walls, a more demanding technical task. Tiles in furniture and fireplaces had their egdes hidden by frames so variations in dimesnions, squareness, chips to the rim etc were readily hidden. No so for tiles on walls indeed precision of dimensions created great cost savings in fixing for tiles were not spaced eith wide bands of grout between them, they were close-butted leaving barely any room for grout. So furniture makers, buyers of fireplaces and the like for the most part chose cheaper tiles that may not be quite so well made but the deficiency not really noticed in use.

Verso very clean, embossed England, letters 'M' and other marks.
