Reproduction Victorian Tiles

William-de-morgan-animal-tiles


In the quest for modernity, thousands of homes were probably striped of their original Victorian tiling some time ago, but with the popularity of roll-top baths showing no signs of abating, you may want to add these Reproduction Victorian Tiles to your bathroom to complete the look.

The tiles are recreations of genuine 19th Century designs. Pictured here are animal theme collection which were designed by arts and crafts pottery designer William De Morgan in 1879 and include an owl, pelican, fish, antelope and dodo in green. There is also a set depicting bird in blue created by Pre-Raphaelite architect and designer Philip Webb in 1859 for William Morris’ Red House and some blue floral designs by Morris himself.

The animal collection cost £27.50 per tile and the others cost £17.95 each from Robert Opie Collection. They also sell period-style plain tiles for £5.95 each because you probably wouldn’t want to tile your wall completely with dodos!
