A superb abstract art nouveau design, very few art nouveau designs are so aggressively stylised, glazed in a very highly translucent olive brown or old gold colour. Highly translucent yet richly coloured the tile presents almost a smooth surface for easy cleaning and minimalising wear yet has great contrast and definition, this is justifiably called an émaux ombrants tile.

The glaze has very low viscosity so that it will pool well in the hollows, this introduces problems in manufacture. Glaze spills over the edges are more likely and must be avoided as then the tile will stick to the kiln furniture and may be damaged upon removal, the tile has to be near perfectly level in the kiln otherwise unsightly pooling will occur near the lower edge. Excellent tile, more in them than initially meets the eye - and that is a feast.

Verso very clean, embossed England and registration number.
