PICTORIAL BLACK TRANSFERWARE TILE
BOY WITH CRAWFISH
Minton China Works
Staffordshire England ~ 1880
This Victorian 6 " x 6 "tile is transfer printed in black against a white background and amongst the finest examples of Mintons China Works monochrome printing with fine detail and great contrast.
One of a set of eight and from one of Minton & Co's earliest picture series first produced in the 1850s and echoing the works of Sadler and Green. Charming scene of a boy with his catch basket and fresh caught Crawfish in hand.
Good condition with chipping along the edge.
