$ 68.00

English artist William DeMorgan created tiles that were dust-pressed flats, the designs looking like charcoal sketches overlain with watercolor paintings. While a very different technique from Motawi's own raised-line "cuenca" style, this Sunflower tile is one of three vertical floral pieces adapted from his work. The Tudor Rose and Carnation tiles complete the collection.The Tudor Rose and Carnation tiles complete the collection. Actual tile size: 3-13/16" x 7-13/16". Tiles are 5/8" thick and have a notch at the back for hanging.
