This is an excellent design, there are a couple similar but this is the top one, and in superb colours and brilliant glazes. By the most excellent company Malkin Tile Works whose wares were too good quality to be widespread in the domestic marketplace.

Interestingly it was reproduced and very well one of the best reproductions of such a complex design made. Being both embossed and impressed the manufacture of the tooling was far more complex especailly compared to raised outline designs the die for which is just a flat plate with the outline incised, it can even be a block of plaster with the line scraped in. Made by John Burgess in Jackfield, many retailed by Acquisitions of London.

Verso very clean, embossed M T W.
