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