A very rare tile with a quite charming scene of a dutch girl feeding a goose with the farmhouse in the background the style reminiscent of the E E Strickland designs for Carter however this predates them by a couple of decades. Richards the only company to use this technique of printed outline with painted with brilliant 'majolica' lead-glaze colours in the 20th century, Marsden did a few in the 19th century and there are some by Wedgwood too which were likely made for them by Marsden. Richards made some rather more twee pictures of dutch children in the same technique which were rather popular originating in edwardian times and still made at least as late as the 1940s latterly often in tea trays. There are also some art nouveau tiles made with the same technique which are wonderful, I've seen maybe half a dozen, I suspect there are at least a couple of dozen in the range.

Verso a very clean, embossed England.
