An excellent embossed majolica tile in quite high relief and carefully painted in five colours, majolica without the benefit of a raised outline to contain the glazes and technically a difficult tile to make. Bright earth tone colours against a rich cobalt blue ground.

Owen Gibbons trained at the South Kensington School of Art and was for a time curator of the Royal Architectural Museum, Westminster, London before becoming head of the Coalbrookdale School of Art in Shropshire. Whilst there he produced some designs for Maw & Co then later he joined his brother Francis in Gibbons, Hinton & Co. There appears to have been some technology exchange between the companies for both were leaders in high relief embossed tiles.

Verso very clean, unmarked, ghosting from the tile beneath in the kiln.
