Product Description

William De Morgan Boston Blue Floral Tile

(Also known as the ‘Merton Abbey’). In 1882 De Morgan moved his studio to Merton Abbey on the River Wandle close to William Morris`s factory. The Boston design was produced at Merton Abbey. The overglaze brings to life the hand painted foliage and vibrant turquoise flowers. A single Boston tile will connect both vertically and horizontally producing a continuous design if required.

Price listed is per one tile and includes VAT.

William De Morgan Floral Tiles
De Morgan designed many variations of floral designs but most were based on daisies, roses, sunflowers or carnations. Probably the most popular tile De Morgan made was the BBB tile. This was originally designed for the Victorian fireplace company Barnard Bishop and Barnard from which the sunflower design gets its name. Many of the tiles include a left and right facing design to allow the tiles to connect vertically and some are cleverly designed to connect both horizontally and vertically.

Measurements
Each tile measures at 6″ x 6″ (152mm x 152mm) x 8mm thick. Ideal for general wall use, or as fireplace tiles.

william-demorganWilliam De Morgan (1839-1917) was one of the most famous designers of tiles from the Arts and Crafts Movement, of which he was a founder member. He painted in a Pre-Raphaelite style, designed stained glass and became a novelist.

He began his career as a stained glass designer, and only later became a potter, supplying William Morris from his home in Chelsea, London. He then moved to a pottery works to Merton in 1881/2 and then to Fulham in 1886. He married Evelyn Pickering, the Pre-Raphaelite painter, in 1887.

During the Fulham period De Morgan experimented with glazes and rediscovered methods of making the intense greens and blues used in Majolica wares. He used these techniques in his own designs and became famous for his complex lusters and deep, intense underglaze painting. In 1907 William De Morgan left the pottery works and continued his life as a successful novelist.
