A rare design as are tiles of this type with
random mottled art glazes within tubelined
outline. Dark and mysterious with vibrant
higlight colours and most brilliant glazes. On a
super strong red dust-pressedclay body.
I am pretty sure this and some others of its
type were made by Malkin Tiles, dating is
uncertain, could be from around 1910 or as late
as the 1930s.
Verso perfectly clean, embossed
Just one minute chip
top left corner, wear to the outline but glaze
surfaces perfect. I have seen tubeline tiles
where the glaze on the outline is deliberately
abraded off in manufacture, it could be so in
this case however I am uncertain.
