M1193 A SET OF 10 BEAUTIFUL VICTORIAN TRANSFER PRINT FIRE TILES
Dimensions:W: 15.3cm (6")H: 15.3cm (6")
A set of 10 very beautiful, Late Victorian, transfer print fire tiles. The tiles have a stunning colour and delicate design depicting flowers with a pretty scrolling border in brown around each tile. The colour of the tiles is clear and unfaded and the design is of a very fine quality. The tiles do not have a makers name but have the number 454 on the back and "England", referring to where the tiles were made. The tiles were originally set into a cast iron fire, surrounding the fire opening and they can be used for this purpose again. The tiles would also make a fantastic sink splashback or other interior project. The tiles are antique and therefore have some slight signs of use and wear. The tile glaze has some crazing and cracking. There are some light smoke marks to the back. There is a hole in one tile. There are some small chips and knocks to the edges. One tile has been broken and repaired and the crack can be seen. Some colour variation to the flowers.The tiles have fantastic character and a very pretty design, and they are very desirable items.
