If you want to conquer the world, you best have dragons. George R.R. Martin
This is an early De Morgan Art Nouveau design with some classic Victorian elements: the blue and white color (but also available in very light cream), its scaleability, the floral border, and the stylized quality of the ducks and dragons. The Happy Ducks and Dragons are available both as accent tiles and as a scaleable backsplash and fireplace surround. The borderless tiles are part of the Art Nouveau Duck and Dragon Backsplash and fireplace surround but can be bought separately.
Here I discuss, and offer, the original design with the carnation borders.
The individual tiles are available with and without borders, depending on the size you choose, and in two colors.
With Carnation border: The Art Nouveau happy dragons are available as shown, with the carnation border, on 8x8 inch tiles. They are not available on 4.25 inch tiles. A 6x6 version is possible, but even so, it's a dense pattern and needs some size to show itself well.
Without Carnation border: Happy Art Nouveau dragons without the carnation border, are available on 6x6 inch tiles.
Individual Happy Dragon tiles are available in Cobalt Blue and De Morgan Persian Red (from his Persian color palette).
8 x 8 inch tiles (only available with border): $88
6 x 6 inch tiles (no border): See Pricing and information the borderless version)
