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.

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.

Individual Ships and Galleons

Tile: Ceramic

Set: No fixed number

Tile: Ceramic

Size: 4.25 inch tiles

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.
