Style: Gothic cornucopia
• Technique: Embossed majolica
Maker: Minton, Hollins & Co.
Dimensions: 6" x 6"
Date: 1890 (circa)


A most incredible tile in high relief and featuring a variety of fruits set within a gothic quatrefoil. Very rarely found, the only time I can recall seeing the design before it was decorated in blue and white. These are superb colours very much in the mould of mid 19th century majolica being slightly gaudy.

Removed from its original frame just prior to my buying it the condition is outstanding, quite exceptional for a high relief tiles there is no damage or wear whatsoever. A top tile in almost any collection or a superb centriepece in an installation, I doubt I shall ever see it's equal - well apart from the fact that I bought two and could not resist keeping the other for my collection :-)

Verso perfectly clean, impressed pattern to ensure consistent thickess of the clay, embossed Minton, Hollins etc.
