**Also available on 8 inch tiles.

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.

I have moved the rest of the ship tile photos: William De Morgan Ship Photos

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.

Ships with Foliage Field Tiles

You can also use the De Morgan foliage tiles as field tiles with the De Morgan ships.

Available Colors

All the ships are available in cobalt and white, and cobalt with turquoise highlights. No one has ever asked for the green ships, so I have stopped making them. Consequently, only half a dozen of these are available in green. I'm working on the the Lewis Carroll fireplace in the original red lustre (but see also the red lustre owls). The archer triptych is also available in red.
