A fun art nouveau design on a chequer tile with a distinctive art deco feel despite its creation in 1905. Quite rarely found I do really like it it being rather cute a description that does not often fit well with art deco. There's a hidden subtlety to the colouring, the background green of the decorated squares is a different shade to the plain squares, not immediately apparent but it does add depth to the overall impression.

Art deco and art nouveau coincided as artists gained real freedom of expression for the first time indeed there is perhaps more art deco in floral design from the edwardian era than the 1920s and 1930s when most examples of the style were softened on small scale objects. Art deco with its regular shapes being more suited to large scale design such as large buildings where it makes a bold statement and is in contrast to the finer decorative elements of previous eras.

Verso quite clean, embossed England and design registration number, painted pattern number.
