Minton Rustic Figures grey Tile c1880

Imperial: 6 ins across
Metric: 15 cm across

There are eight different scenes in the Rustic Figures series, which was introduced about 1846/7 under factory pattern number 57. Early examples are recorded with Prossers Patent embossed on the back, although the series was still in production in 1885 and probably later, so dating individual tiles is difficult. The series is often attributed to William Wise, but this is incorrect and the original artist and engraver have not been identified. This tile features a mother and daughter resting from gathering crops/firewood and is printed in grey. Backstamp: Mintons China Works Stoke on Trent Mintons Stoke Upon Trent Walbrook London. Light all over crazing with a little minor discolouration at the top and to the side there is a little damage to one corner and a few minor rust marks. There is a small hairline on the back which does not go through. Sounds much worse than it looks.
