Seller: classicfantasyartworks (2.996) 100%, Location: Ocala, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 143310081577 Sherwin & Cotton - Circa 1879 "Arts & Crafts Floral"-- Antique * Transfer-Printed * Hand-Tinted * Poly-Chrome * Registered -- An Arts & Crafts Style Floral Design, Created by Sherwin & Cotton, Hanley, England! An uncommon, Arts & Crafts, poly-chrome, tile of superior quality and design, created by one of the most respected art tile makers in England, whose beautiful tiles led the way for others to follow from their founding in 1877, until they closed in 1930. Expertly printed, and carefully hand tinted, with five (5) natural, under-glaze, colors, upon a thick, hearth worthy, buff clay biscuit, the tile expresses the tranquility of nature, so sought after by the Arts & Crafts Movement. Perfectly wonderful quality is displayed for both design and precision of manufacture This tile is rarely found and was created only two years after the manufacturer was founded, which makes this tile quite early, for both the company and Arts & Crafts style, expressed with a design of interweaving foliage festooned with budding flowers, blossoms in full bloom, and what appears to be some sort of gourd-like fruit. An example of this tile may be found in Victoria & Albert's collection, and illustrated in "William de Morgan Tiles" by John Catleugh. Condition: Excellent Designed for the hearth, this tile avoided most all the hazards of such a purpose, although it did serve as such, and is still in amazing condition. The verso displays the early bar patterned grip of Sherwin & Cotton, along with a printed pattern number and a fully legible English Registration stamp. What is interesting about this tile's design registration date, is the date was Christmas Eve, December, 24th, 1879! Please examine the high-resolution scans of this tile to determine its exact state.
