Tile ~ Wedgwood Months ~ DECEMBER ~ 1879
Mistletoe ~ 1879
EARLY ENGLISH BLUE TRANSFERWARE TILE
MONTHS ~ DECEMBER
Wedgwood China Works
Staffordshire England ~ 1879
This Victorian 6 " x 6 "tile is transfer printed in blue against an off white background showing good detail and good contrast. The best dark blue I have seen.
The tile from the Early English 12 Months Series was designed by Helen J. A. Miles, an artist extraordinaire at the Wedgwood factories. This particular tile depicts the month of December and features images of a young girl and boy with the boy holding Mistletoe up hoping for a Christmas kiss.
Excellent condition, never used.
