Hand Painted Wild Fruits & Flowers Tiles
 
  • Style: Aesthetic movement nature study

A group of six of some of the most attractive tiles I have seen handpainted overglaze in the most beautiful colours and ably reflecting the joys of nature. Wonderfully lifelike and yet stylish and pretty representations of fruit, flowers, butterflies and bees against backgrounds of handpainted silky texture pale green. This gives a great backdrop and minmises detraction from enjoyment of the subjects which are excellently proportioned and fill the tiles leaving just a slender border so ideal for framing for those who wish to.

These tiles have had a few adventures, originally fitted in to a fireplace they were removed and stuck to a wall with adhesive, then apparently removed and stuck in to frames with silicon adhesive and then the whole lot has been again stuck to a wall. Well that's what it seems like from the three different types of adhesive on them when we got them. They now however are almost perfectly clean and really most attractive.

Versos almost perfectly clean, fully named as usual for Minton Hollins although these may have been decorated by an independent artist or studio.

Buy the group of five and there's a discount of 10% (shipping costs are reduced too).
