William De Morgan Persian Fish Frieze tiles in brown, blue, and green.
William Freund De Morgan met William Morris in 1863, when he was 24. They shared a love of medieval themes and fairy tales, and the natural world. He began his crafts work by designing stained glass for Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co, where he worked until 1872. His florals show Morris's influence but his fantastic creatures and fish reflect his many collaborations with Edward Burne-Jones.
I have several De Morgan fish series tile sets:
Turquoise, Amethyst, and Lapis Fish: A set of eight repeating tiles in turquoise, amethyst, and lapis blue. They can be used installed in fireplaces, kitchens, bathrooms, or any interior wall.
Persian Fish Frieze: Three 6 inch or 4.25 inch tiles. There is a seamless version that allows infinite repeat. These fish are in De Morgan's "Persian" color palette. The colors are strong blue, brown, and green.
Angry fish border tiles: A set of three or six 6 x 3 inch repeating tiles from the Fish & Peacocks set.
Fish & Peacocks: The Fish border can be installed with the complete Fish & Peacock Mural as De Morgan created it, or the fish can be installed as a separate border. De Moral Mural fish are available in 4.25 and 6 inch tiles.
De Morgan made these fish in his "Persian" color palette. The blue is a Persian blue. These fish are available in two variations: The base pattern and extended set for an infinite repeat. In the installation photo, the customer chose to use the base pattern, with panels reversed for symmetry. The seamless verision allows an infinite repeat without reversing. This is a repeat of the last three tiles in the cover shown above.
