Foliage Field Tiles

De Morgan Nine-Square Bough

William De Morgan Nine-Square Bough, available in 4.25 and 6 inch

This is William De Morgan's 'Version B', an adaptation of William Morris's 'Bough' design. The diagonal branch with leaves and fruit was used William Morris in the 'Fruit' wallpaper design. It is available in ceramic or on tumbled stone.

Because the design does not cover the entire tile, natural variations in the marble will show through. These will vary from tile to tile. See some base tiles.

Title: Nine-Square Bough

Tile: Ceramic or Tumbled stone

Size: 4.25 or 6 inch square tiles

Full Bough Field Tiles

William Morris, William De Morgan Early Blue Longden

I have two variations of De Morgan full boughs tiles. The full-bough tiles are often used as field tiles, but they work just as well as art or statement tiles. They are a good field tile choice for the De Morgan ships and galleons and the De Morgan Fantastic Birds and Animal tiles

Title: De Morgan Full-Bough Foliage Field Tiles

Size: 4.25 or 6 inch square tiles (15.4 cm)

Pricing for Nine-Bough and Full-Bough Ceramic Tiles

4.25 inch square tiles: $42 each

6 inch square tiles: $53 each
