EARLY ENGLISH BLUE TRANSFERWARE TILE
MONTHS ~ MARCH
Wedgwood China Works
Staffordshire England ~ 1879
This Victorian 6 x 6 inch 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 plate is from the Early English 12 Months Series was designed by Helen J. A. Miles, an artist extraordinaire at the Wedgwood factories. This particular plate depicts the month of April and features images of two young children out on a windy march day.
Excellent condition, never used. A few wrinkles in the transfer process.
