Item:202756264594Normal 0 Five Days only with NO RESERVE and ends on Sunday 18 August 2019 - Please take a look at some of the other great tiles I have on eBay this week including another tile from this great set.. This is simply a fabulous tile with wonderful design, detailing, quality and humour. Shakespeare's Seven Ages of Man which was a great theme taken up by a variety of late 19th Century tile manufacturers and designers. One of the most outstanding (or maybe it just suits my wry sense of humour) is THE SEVEN AGES OF BIRDS produced by the Mintons China Works from around 1878. The series is referenced in Lockett and is Mintons Pattern Number 1653. Not uniquely for Minton a set of tiles with a number in the title does not have that number of tiles in the set as the Seven Ages of Birds consists of 8 tiles and this is number 3 - the SOLDIER where the young bird has just somewhat grown up ... the insects continue to look on!! The tile is a standard 6 inches (15 cms) square and is marked to the reverse with the diagonal relief MINTON CHINA WORKS STOKE ON TRENT marks as shown. The tile is in excellent condition with a superb glaze, great clarity and consistent colouring. There is no damage or restoration . I pack to an excellent standard and am happy to quote for shipment to any specific destination worldwide. Please also be aware that any second, or third tile purchased will only add around 50% to the shipment cost of the first. The shipment costs shown are simply what Royal Mail will charge me and I do not charge for the first rate packing materials that I use nor the charge that eBay levies on my shipment cost. If you purchase more than one tile please wait for an invoice before making payment. My thanks.
