Made in England - Circa 1900 "Red Peony Flower" -- Early Art Nouveau Design * Majolica * Antique -- "This tile displays a single, Ruby red, Peony flower, with a brilliant Yellow Amber stamen, resting upon curvy, Emerald Green, leaves, all floating upon a White glaze ground, which features an impressed leaf pattern." This tile is 6" inches square, made of white clay, dust-pressed, by hand, and displays 4 colors of brilliant glaze. This tile was created by an unidentified English tile maker, such as, "Mintons, Ltd," whose versa grip pattern is a perfect match, but unmarked. Because this tile's back is not embossed with the word, "England," we can be sure this tile was manufactured before 1901, when this was required by English law. However, the quality of the tile, its precision, and its use of a difficult and expensive Red glaze, plus the tile's thickness of 3/8", informs us it is the product of an advanced tile company, like "Mintons, Ltd.," or even "Alfred Meakin," with great skill. We, therefore, date this tile to, circa 1900, but it very well could have easily been produced in the late 1890s. Condition: Excellent. This tile is in excellent condition for its antique age and for having survived being used as a "cheek" tile for an English, coal burning, fireplace in some fine home. The verso is unmarked, but its bar stye grip, with its glaze painted design number, is identical to that of known tiles by "Mintons, Ltd." Being an unmarked, majolica, tile, this tile could have been made under contract with Mintons with, "The Campbell Tile Company," who was known to produce such tiles. Please examine the provided high-resolution scans of this antique tile to determine its exact state. Size: 6" x 6" inches x 3/8" thick. * Maker: English Company * Style: Art Nouveau * Date: Circa 1900 06/1249550/21
