Fabulous arts & crafts panel with a stylised arrangement of irises. Lovely flowing style suggestive of the years immediately preceding the popularity of art nouveau. Painted outline in mid brown overpainted with brilliant translucent coloured majolica glazes in lively earth tones.

On unmarked Marsden blanks, almost certainly decorated by Marsden but there is some slight room for doubt for this was style of grip pattern blank he also sold to other companies including The Decorative Art Tile Co. The technique however is more Marsden, one of if not the earliest user of the technique of painting with majolica glazes usually to a printed outline, examples are most often seen on Wedgwood prints. Marsden was associated with Wedgwood, Wedgwood licensed Marsden patent for impressing decoration of various forms in to tile blanks and reports indicate that he managed Wedgwood's tile making department from its inception in 1881 until its closure in 1888.

Versos near perfectly clean, minor clay loss from water based adhesive, unmarked but well known Marsden biscuit.

Wonderful condition for a panel, one tile broken and repaired, bottom row next to right, very clean break and well repaired with just three glaze chips on the line could easily be filled but barely seen anyway. See the individual tile pictures below. Otherwise a couple of tiny bruises, slight glazes losses to the tip of the rim, minute manufacturing flaw inclusions in the glaze. Overwhelmingly clean, bright and brilliant.
