Stovax Poppies Floral Border Decorated Tile
Priced per single tile. The Stovax Poppies Floral Border Decorated Tile was faithfully reproduced from a Victorian original. Stovax fireplace single tiles are ideal for use in both antique and reproduction cast iron tiled fireplaces. Set against a rich cream glaze, the decoration uses up to 18 separate colours in each design to make the tiles indistinguishable from hand-coloured originals.
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.
