About the Birds
The birds were designed by Philip Webb for Red House, William and Jane Morris's first married home. The original birds (duck, goose, stork, magpie (grouse), hen, and cockeral). are available in 6 inches square, and 4.25 inches square. The birds with the Victorian floral borders are available in 6 inch and 8 inch tiles. The border tiles are 6 x 3 inch tiles.
The original birds are available in 4.25 and 6 inch tile only. They're shown here with an alternating nine-bough square that was sold through Morris & Co. I have other variations on blue and white foliage available.
