Block Printed Tiles[]

The Collins and Reynolds patent of 1848 allowed that "Broad and flat layers of colour could be produced and several colours transferred at the same time."  A plate for each colour was produced in relief, inked and printed onto a sheet of tissue paper, this was repeated for each colour using a frame to ensure correct registration. The print was then transferred to the tile by rubbing and then peeled or soaked off before firing.
