Exotic birds such as parrots, macaws, cockatoos were popular Victorian pets. While generally considered appropriate pets for women, especially lonely women, as an outlet for their emotions, both Rossetti and the De Morgans kept exotic birds. Several De Morgan panels feature parrots.
The Macaw and Parrot panels are available on 6 and 8 inch ceramic tiles.
Application: These tiles are a good choice for fireplace tile panels, or as a backsplash.

*Fireplace renovations can have more space constraints than tile renovations and the configurations are endless. The parrots and macaws are very forgiving in this regard. By changing the tiles blanks to 8 x 6, the height can be increased or decreased in 6-inch increments. Leaving a slightly larger outside border allows widths to be adjusted at install time. Let me know if your project needs this kind of accommodation.
