Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co. produced the first set of Sleeping Beauty panels for a bedroom fireplace at 'The Hill': it was one of three, with Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast, designed the home of painter Myles Birket Foster. The tiles were designs by Edward Burne-Jones and painted by Lucy Faulkner.
Fairy tale tiles were installed in three bedrooms at 'The Hill'. Other fairy
tale panels installed in bedrooms at 'The Hill' are:
You can see the Sleeping Beauty panels in the same format they were installed here.

It could be a tile from any of the fairy tale tile sets.
Colors vary slightly between runs so your final tiles probably won't match the color exactly. If you want to change colors slightly, you can. See How to Order Tile
The fairy tale tiles are decorative tileuse and can be installed on walls, backsplashes, showers, and fireplace surrounds. No special treatment is necessary; the colors are permanently fired into the tile. You can clean ceramic tiles with any household non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth or sponge.
Laying out your tile beforehand will make installation easier. Use only unsanded grout when setting your tile. Sanded grout and hard scrubbing with abrasive cleansers can dull the finish by putting very tiny lines. The color will not come off; it is baked in.
I include detailed installation guidelines with your final order.
Even after you've decided you want the fairy tale tiles, you have several choices, which are not mutually exclusive: Swans or no swans (one either likes swans or one doesn't, there is no half-heartedness about swans), story description tiles, or only the story tiles themselves, side panels or the horizontal panels, or both.
