William De Morgan Persian Fish Frieze

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:

William De Morgan Fish Tiles Set of 3

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.
