Minton tile William Wise Country Village Life - Harvest Time.
A very good dark blue printed pottery tile from the series drawn by William Wise for Mintons of scenes from country or village life. This one depicts a once common place scene of a family in the field taking a break at hay making time, with mother feeding baby and daughter pouring a drink. Date - early 1900's with moulded mark to verso " Mintons China Works - Stoke on Trent - Made in England " with pattern number printed in blue. Size 6" square.
Condition: Excellent - some very slight crazing as is common with pottery of this age being the only thing to note. A good strong dark blue print, signed by the artist in the bottom right corner. Please see all photographs and as ever I am happy to send more and answer any questions you may have.
