Item:133072002698Mintons, Ltd. - Circa 1881 "Brown Floral" -- Antique * Molded Majolica * Arts & Crafts -- An wonderful, Arts & Crafts, majolica tile from, "Mintons, Ltd.," manufactured at their "China Works," located in Stoke Upon Trent, England, circa 1881. This tile features three stylistic flowers, with wildly curvy stems and leaves, molded onto a thick (1/2"), white, dust-pressed, biscuit and glazed in light brown monochrome. The sculpting fits nicely in the Arts & Crafts, Mission, and Aesthetic, movement styles, and the almost whiplash lines of the flowers brings Art Nouveau to mind. Note the dimpled field behind the floral forms and the square design of the corners, meant to form a design when these tiles are coupled. This tile is an excellent example of this maker's artistic talent and ability to manufacture molded majolica tiles of very high quality. Condition: Excellent. The weighty tile spent most of its 138 years serving as part of a decorative back splash on a piece of furniture, and thus escaped the hazards of an English coal burning fireplace, for which this hearth tile, with its 1/2" thickness, was designed. The verso displays the characteristic Mintons China Works grip pattern, which is free of mortar and soot. This design appears in Mintons China Works catalogue (SD 1705/MS1367), on page 84 of its 206 pages, and is labeled "E. 2484." We have provided you with an image of this page in this listing above.
