An unusual if not rare tile, a design I can not recall seeing previously and the first Sherwin's 'R Series' tile I recall seeing on a buff clay body. R Series tiles are painted with a 'stiff' colour, not like slips used by many others being rather more translucent and wth a wider range of colours than those available in slips. Such painting gives a subtle relief to the tile surface. Note the white painting to lift the petals above the background pale buff, and the general precision of the decoration, a top quality tile.

Verso very clean, embossed staffordshire knot mark, painted pattern number.
