Morris & Co. Blue and White Tiles : Flowers and Foliage

Morris and Co. produced several versions of blue florals in both tile and textile designs. The designs were implemented first in as individual tiles, and later adapted as panels and as textiles.

William De Morgan Nine-Square Bough, available in 4.25 and 6 inch

De Morgan Nine-Square Bough

This is William De Morgan's 'Version B', an adaptation of William Morris's 'Bough' design. The diagonal branch with leaves and fruit was used William Morris in the 'Fruit' wallpaper design. It is available in ceramic or on Botticino marble.

Because the design does not cover the entire tile, natural variations in the marble will show through. These will vary from tile to tile. See some base tiles.
