STUNNING WEDGWOOD MAJOLICA TILE, 8" Square,PASSION FLOWER & VINE
I consider this one of the most beautiful tiles I have ever seen. The coloring is perfect, the moulding and botanical design is botanically impeccable. The background is a deep lustre brown with iridescent highlights. The passion flower has a cerulean center of feathery rich blue stamens, plus the yellow pistils and the very white petals. The vine also includes tendrils and five point leaves as well as two buds. The vine trails along a rope, with entwined ribbon. The tile is hand painted and the coloring is just gorgeous - shades of green with yellow touches, the blues, gleaming whites, paler greens, etc. The moulding is low relief, very well defined, which enhances this sculptural and botanically correct tile. The condition of the tile is excellent, with no damages at all, just slight aging on the back. It is impressed WEDGWOOD On the back and the date mark is POD, which does not match Batkin's guide. The tile was probably made in the 1870s-1880s.
