A Midsummer Night's Dream

Victorian Fairy Tiles

Victorian Fairies

Victorian Fairies Backsplash The Victorian Fairies are born from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, and adapted from the Quarrel of Oberon and Titania (1849) by Joseph Noel Paton, Scottish artist and sculptor.

Magic was woven into the fabric of daily life for Victorians. It was not a reactionary movement to the soullessness of a newly-industrial society, as can be argued of Arts & Crafts and the Pre-Raphaelites. Neither was it a fantasy world removed from everyday life. Indeed, Victorians walked around in magic with faeries and spirits seen just out of the corner of one's eye.

Ceramic Tile Borders, Backsplash, Fireplace Panels, and Accent Tiles

The fairy tiles are available in four formats:

  • Border and accent tiles

  • Undercabinet backsplash

  • Small fireplace panels

  • Large fireplace panels / backsplash

I've intentionally made the design scaleable so it will work in as many possible installations as possible. Panels and borders can be installed side by side.

Border and Accent Tiles

You may want accent tiles to intersperse with your field tile. They also work well as a border.

Sizes: 4.25 inch, 6 inch

Fireplace panels are available on 4.25 or 6 inch ceramic tiles.

Custom sizes

Sizes can be customized quite a bit to fit your installation. Heights will scale, but there is some leeway.

Every project has some custom aspect. If these exact dimensions don't work, there are solutions. We can use part of a two- or three-inch mesh panel to get the dimensions you need. Or wider grout spacing, a frame of field or border tiles, there are many possible options.

How to Order Victorian Fairies

Panels and backsplashes are poor candidates for quick order -- Get an invoice to take advantage of quantity and other discounts. You can order a small accent tile to get an idea of pattern size and relative colors, but it won't be seamless.
