Antique English Landscape Tile Farm Scene
An antique English tile c. 1900 made in an intaglio process, rendering the image nearly photographic. This tile shows a farm scene with a man pushing a wheelbarrow from a barn towards a stone bridge that crosses a small stream. Normally one sees this type of tile in a single color glaze. The two colors of glaze pool into the recesses of the design giving it depth. The addition of more colors makes it much more interesting. The condition is very good, with only minor edge flaws. The back is unmarked. Measures 6" square.
