I have another excellent tile from this great set on eBay this week as well as a good selection of tiles from a variety of late 19th Century manufacturers - please take a look. This is another absolutely outstanding example from one of the very best sets ever designed by the great John Moyr Smith or produced by the inimitable Minton's China Works in Stoke on Trent in the last quarter of the 19th Century. This is the 8 inches (20 cms) square KELTIC HARP - this time it is a somewhat languid looking Lady with an fabulous robe decorated with Hearts and a wonderful hairstyle!! This comes from the set of 8 such 8 inch tiles which JMS designed for Mintons as part of the Classical Figures with Musical Instruments. Examples are illustrated in every good tile book and the designs are featured in Annamarie Stapleton's excellent 'John Moyr Smith'. The colouring, definition and glaze are all to quite an exceptional standard and the tile has no damage and no restoration other than a very very slight rub to the top left corner and a very small scratch near the bottom right corner. The detailing is great and, of course, the designer once again manages to fit his name into the design. The tile has a standard Minton back of the period with relief MINTON'S CHINA WORKS STOKE ON TRENT and the Globe mark - there is no fixing residue to the reverse or to the sides. I pack to an excellent standard and will quote for any specific destination if you wish. If you buy more than one tile please wait for an invoice so that I may reflect savings in shipment costs - thank you! A six inch tile can ship with an 8 inch for little more cost than the 8 inch - I regret that I cannot ship more than one 8 inch together under the Royal Mail 2 kgs weight limit but I can ship by other means. Condition: In excellent condition.
