Victorian Tiles achieved their
maximum popularity from 1880 to 1901. The primarily British
tile industry sent their tiles world-wide, to Canada, the United
States and as far away as Australia and New Zealand.
Prominent artists were commissioned to design tiles, and designs
were often planned to allow clever patterning when several
tiles were used together. Designs were usually applied with
a transfer printing technique.
Tile patterns varied from the popular floral motifs to the
more aesthetic Anglo-Japanese designs. Fireplace sets were
made to enhance coal-burning cast-iron fireplaces.
Our selection of Victorian tiles are all reproductions of
original Victorian designs.
