Dog Fireplace Tile
This Dutch delft design was reproduced from tiles in a Victorian Arts and Crafts manor house in Sussex. Although unattributed, it is thought to be c.1899. There are 9 animal designs in this collection. Each tile is decorated underglaze in delft blue and then coated in a transparent glaze. The matching plain tiles to accompany this design are tin white, craquelle engobe or dark blue.
These original designs are decorated onto a tin white glaze using the traditional cobalt blue in-glaze techniques. We also offer an ‘aged’ option where the design is painted onto an engobe under-glaze before being coated in a crazing transparent glaze. Ideal for use in kitchens, bathrooms and fireplaces.
If you are buying this tile for use in a fireplace insert, you will usually want to have a total of 14 single tiles to make a full run. You can mix and match any single tiles you prefer. We have many complimentary coloured tiles you can choose from to match with these designs.
This tile measures at 6″ x 6″ (152mm x 152mm) x 8mm thick.
