A very rare tile and a rare genre, in the freedom of experimentation that heralded the popularity of art nouveau many new styles were attempted, we mostly only see those that captured the public's imagination. Majolica decoration is by virtue of its nature is limiting in detail so mostly we see bold and rather simple designs a striking contrast to designs of the aesthetic era. This is a full blown art nouveau design which embraces the complexity afforded by printing, full of action and rather more akin to art nouveau designs in other media than usually found on tiles. Whilst perhaps not the most endearing for decorative use it is a true and precisely dated example of the art and great for collectors of design and art history.

Verso perfectly clean, embossed England, printed pattern and registration numbers.
