Minton Antique English Transfer Tile Trivet Country Pursuits Woman at the Sea Shore with Fish and Lobsters
A Nice English Victorian tile by Mintons in series called "Country Pursuits" designed by William Wise (1847-1889) and made in the 1880's. This tile shows a woman at the sea shore holding a net and a small basket of fish. A larger basket and lobsters are in the foreground. A sailboat and anchor are in the background. It is held in a period decorative twisted wire frame trivet. Measures 6" x 6" and sits 1" high off the table surface. The back has an embossed "Mintons China Works Stoke on Trent" and the globe mark used 1868-1900. Crazed, the shiny surface has only a little wear and no damages.
