Victorian Fireplace Tiles

William De Morgan Parrots and Macaws

She was not quite what you would call refined. She was not quite what you would call unrefined. She was the kind of person that keeps a parrot. ~Mark Twain

William De Morgan fireplace tiles, Parrots and Macaws.  Parrots were onsidered appropriate pets for women, especially lonely women, in the 19th century, as an outlet for their emotions.

Exotic birds such as parrots, macaws, cockatoos were popular Victorian pets. While generally considered appropriate pets for women, especially lonely women, as an outlet for their emotions, both Rossetti and the De Morgans kept exotic birds. Several De Morgan panels feature parrots.

Single accent tiles in three variations. Currently black background only.

Fireplace Tiles

Fireplace tiles can be used as in a fireplace surround or as a backsplash. They are seamless on the vertical, so you can increase or decrease height by adding and subtracting tiles. They are seamless when reversed so you can accommodate any height of fireplace panel.

Application: These tiles are a good choice for fireplace tile panels, or as a backsplash.

    Working with Fireplace Constraints*

    Fireplace renovations can have more space constraints than tile renovations and the configurations are endless. The parrots and macaws are very forgiving in this regard. They are seamless on the vertical so you can increase height by adding tiles. For eight inch tiles, by putting the tiles on 8 x 6 inch tiles, the increment can be increased or decreased in 6-inch increments at the top or bottom of the panel.

    Is you fireplace surrounds space not exactly 6 or 8 inches? I've even seen fireplaces where the space between the firebox and the mantel was different on each side. We can solve this! By leaving a slightly larger outside border allows widths to be adjusted at install time. This can be solved as was done in the Turqoise Peacock Fireplace Tiles Let me know if your project needs this kind of accommodation.
