A complex design with characteristic subjects, carnations, the flying crane, blossom on branch and a glimpse of an oriental landscape on a scroll. These vignettes are set against a most complex geometric background which has a wealth of graduations in intensity of colour. In a super shade of blue this tile is a feast, and nearly a challenge, for the eye.

The image is full size at 72 dpi (about 430 pixels wide) in maximum quality JPEG format. A larger 120 dpi image also in maximum quality JPEG format can be forwarded by email if required.

The image is a little oversize rather than cropped close to the edges so that the edges can easily be seen and any chips etc can be quickly spotted. Other marks described are usually not visible at all when the tile is viewed straight as one normally sees it and can only be seen with a critical eye when the tile is tilted to catch imperfections in reflected light. For more details of how we describe marks see Condition.
