What a lucky find these tiles were! This colorful, low-relief, majolica tile from "T & R Boote, Ltd.," Waterloo Road Works, Newcastle Street, Burslem, is expertly crafted and features a huge, Orange-Amber, flower head, supported by emerald green leaves, surrounding a cream colored field, and backed by a deep Midnight Blue ground.
Condition: Very Good.
This tile displays some glaze loss to its dark blue field at its lower right corner. Fortunately, this flaw is pretty easy to handle for display purposes. One may simply tint the revealed white clay dark blue to match the glaze and make it less noticeable, or, place the tile in a frame for display, which hides the flaw.
Verso is an early Boote bar grip, which is free of soot and mortar stains. The verso displays an embossed "England."
