William De Morgan Turquoise Daisy Tile
De Morgan designed the Daisy during his Chelsea Period (1872-1881). This powerful design combines brushwork with deep, rich turquoise flowers. This tile uses the typical Morris compositional device of a strong diagonal flower branch with three flowers. A left and right tile allows the design to connect vertically if required for use in a fireplace, but it is often used as a decorative inset tile.
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.
Each tile measures at 6″ x 6″ (152mm x 152mm) x 8mm thick. Ideal for general wall use, or as fireplace tiles.
