Minton Tile Walter Crane My Pretty Maid Hand Decorated
A well executed Walter Crane (1845-1915) image of My Pretty Maid hand drawn and painted on a Minton tile. Measures 6" square. One small flake on top edge and one on the bottom. The back is marked "Minton Hollins Patent Tile Works Stoke On Trent" and has an applied hanger so a frame is not needed to display this tile on a wall. Tape with an artist's mis-attribution removed.
The nursery rhyme images by Walter Crane first appeared in the children's book "The Baby's Opera" published in 1877.
