Item:143368359006You are bidding on a STUNNING Original Antique Hand Painted Red Lustre by JC Edwards and dating from the last quater of the 19th Century ! Measuring the standard 6" square, this superb floral tile is quadruple painted in hues of red lustre- each time refired and finally gilded on the outlines - it is simply breathtaking! It was reclaimed from a pub in Birmingham which was demolished in the 1980s and we are so happy it has survived!! Marked JC Edwards on the verso- a welsh tile maker that were linked to a number of designers including Lewis F Day and LA Shuffrey, this tile is pure quality- hugely similar to De Morgan's floral designs of the period. There is also a chance that this is not a Edwards tile product and actually a blank used by another designer or company which was common practice at the time- either way this is a truly beautiful rare tile! It is in good antique condition with minimal age wear, the lustre and filding have agreat sheenm whilst the tile has just a small amount of crazing which does not detract at all and is only noted for ebay accuracy (see photos) - WOW! This is an absolute must rare tile for any collector and those with a lovely house in which to display it in!! HAPPY BIDDING - NO RESERVE!
