William De Morgan designed 18 variations of ship tiles, but the some of the elements change between executed tiles, making the possibilities nearly endless. The sails, waves, and fish change and clouds birds and celestial bodies come and go. I have 15 variations available, and one triptych. The late galleon is available in 4.25 inch and 6 inch. All the other galleons are available in 4.25 inch only.
Most recent ships: Longship with rowers, lead dragon ship, angel with horn and rising sun galleon, archers and magic bird triptych, bird ship with moon, bird ship with three patterned sails, skiff with cloud and wind, ship with pilot house.
Disclaimer: I am confident of all but the last two ships, the Man o'War and Aramada flagship. Alas, I do not know my ships half as well as I know my dragons but these have been identified by someone who thinks he does.
Set: No fixed number
Size: 4.25 inch tiles
You can also use the De Morgan foliage tiles as field tiles with the De Morgan ships.
De Morgan ships are also available on 6-inch and 8-inch tiles. The 8-inch tile has three rows of ships in the nine-bough pattern shown with green tiles. The 6-inch tile has four ships. You can choose your ships. For 8-inch tiles, you may want an equal number of one with five ships as shown, and the complementary pattern with four ships and five boughs.
Available colors: All the ships are available in cobalt and white, and cobalt with turquoise highlights. No one has ever asked for the red or green ships, so I have stopped making them. Consequently, only half a dozen of these are available in green, and the archer triptych is available also available in red.
