An interesting and very rare tile, I can't recall seeing the design previously. One of those 'is it art nouveau or deco' designs, art deco is not 1920s onwards it is present in the art nouveau period too for example their are art deco designs by Corn Brothers who went out of business in 1915. The grip pattern was in use from around 1907 to the late 1920s so I've put the date half way between but I suspect it may be around 1910.

A simple design but there is quite a lot in it, there's perhaps an almost subliminal Calvary there. It's interesting upside-down, assuming I have it the right way up! The modelling and moulding are superb and it's a good translucent glaze, a fascinating tile.

Verso very clean, embossed copyright and England.
