Christopher Dresser Butterfly Tile
This reproduced Christopher Dresser tile design features a series of repeating squares, including a border of stylized butterflies. The central square cartouche has a circular burst of flower stamens, but the flower is not recognizable, again due to the stylized reduction of the botanical study to a geometricized motif. The background clay is cream colored the transfer is dominantly brown with deep yellow highlights. The back of the tile has the characteristic markings of Minton China Works.
They are also ideal for use with a fireplace insert. You will usually want to have a total of 14 single tiles to make a full run for a fireplace. Mix and match any single tiles you prefer, we have many complimentary tiles you can choose from to match with this design.
This tile measures at 6″ x 6″ (152mm x 152mm) x 8mm thick.
