English Victorian Aesthetic Tile  -  Girl Holding Bird
VICTORIAN AESTHETIC MOVEMENT TILE - A Young Girl Admiring a Swallow in her Hand. This lovely study of a young girl with a swallow perched on her hand. The study reflects clothing of the Victorian period, the innocence of the girl and the Victorian penchant for being in touch with nature. There is a quiet joy on the young girl's face as enjoys the closeness of nature, in the form of bird which she appears to have tamed. The central rondel containing the girl and the swallow is surrounded by four semi-lune cartouches with flowers, and a geometricized background. The maker is unknown. The use of a bar formation for the back of a tile was used by many manufacturers, e.g. W. & E. Corn, Malkin and Godwin, at various points of time. The tile is 6" square. It is in very good clean condition, with a shallow chip on the back, not visible from the front.
