William De Morgan Yellow Fruit Tree Tile
The fruit tree design was created at De Morgan’s studio at Merton Abbey between 1882 and 1887. The repeating vertical pattern covers two tiles, fruit tree (a) and fruit tree (b) which can also be connected horizontally to make an ‘all over’ pattern if required. These beautiful hand painted underglaze tiles are often used for a fireplace surrounds as well as in kitchens and bathrooms as decorative inset tiles.
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.
