Aesop's Fables

Aesop was a Greek storyteller who lived from 620 B.C. to 564 B.C. Edward Detmold illustrated many of Aesop's Fables and these were well-known to Victorians, children and adults alike. I've adapted these to cobalt blue and white tiles, in keeping with the Victorian love of Blue and white Delftware and Chinese blue and white porcelain. Dante Gabriel Rossetti was a collector of blue and white china.
