A rarely found tile of a hybrid style finished in most unusual colours, blue-grey, purple, mauve and lemon. Classical style was reinterpreted with art nouveau and again with art deco the latter mostly demonstrably seen in architectural settings such as department stores and offices of the 1920s and 30s, it is good to see it on a more human scale. Although some more traditional classical designs are seen on tile in the earlier part of the decade especially from Pilkington this is relatively early classical/deco fusion likely being designed in 1914. New Marsden Tiles Ltd was fomed in 1914 (not 1908 as seen in some literature) and dissolved in 1920, the pattern number suggests it was a very early design for the new company.

Verso near perfectly clean, embossed England, NMT, painted pattern number.
