Stovax Water Plantain Fireplace Tile
Priced per single tile. This particular tile has a soft Art Nouveau style featuring a water plantain flower design, with a superb glazed cream background. Stovax fireplace single tiles are ideal for use in both antique and reproduction cast iron tiled fireplaces. Authentically-crafted tube-lined tile with a highly translucent glaze that faithfully reflects the charm and style of the Victorian fireplace.
Unless stated otherwise, Stovax tiles measure 152 x 152 x 9mm (Subject to normal manufacturing tolerances), the edges are virtually square, so that the tiles can be laid hard up against each other without the need for grout.
The Victorian and Edwardian tile was very much a feature of the fire within the room, and was often vivid in colour with stunning designs. This could be as simple as a coloured embossed tile, to a run of tiles depicting many different scenes or images. From floral to symmetry, to simply unusual. Once the fire was lit these tiles would glow and the picture seen was so enticing.
When the Art Nouveau period arrived this style reached its way to all the accessories of a stylish home which very much included the tiles of the fire. They were awash with elegant curves, shapes and colours and would finish off that wonderful period image.
