Anique Minton England Porcelain Tiles Woman Jug 1880s


These were made by Sherwin & Cotton. They are fireplace tiles, designed for an English fireplace's cheek tile surround. The are both "Émaux Ombrants" style tiles, whose designer was, George Cartlidge. They date circa 1900.

The tile on the left measures just under 12" tall and 6" wide not counting the frame. The right tile measures 11.75" x just under 6" wide.

Condition: Both have crazing. The left tile has top glaze color missing from two corners as shown. I was not able to remove all the nails from this one to check over the sides, but they may have chips. The right tile has a scratch at about elbow height on the left. Please ignore the dark curved reflection at the mid left part of the tile. This one has a corner chip on the back side seen only when removed from the frame. Both have a very shiny glaze.
