Hand made pottery tile with a painted design by Joseph Roelants. Such 1920s/30s examples are more consistently painted than earlier examples, later the company screenprinted the patterns. This a more complex painting than any other that I have seen which often lack the colourful flowers on the near river bank and even the trees on the far bank, perhaps this an earlier example and later the painting was simplified. Blanchett shows an example with the trees but without the flowers

Examples of simplification are seen from time to time on nineteenth century tiles too, simplification of painting but also replacing painting with colour printing indeed Carter did this themselves in the 1890s at a time when decorative tile manufacture was apparently subcontracted.

Verso near perfectly clean.
