delft

Victorian Ceramics uses traditional decorating techniques and original authentic designs to bring you this impressive collection of tile designs.

These timeless designs have endured the test of time allowing you to create the perfect finishing detail to any period interior, restoration project or contemporary interior.

Over many years we have been asked to reproduce delft designs for customers to replace broken or damaged original tiles. They are often found in Arts and Crafts houses alongside the tiles of William de Morgan and William Morris. In fact some Dutch manufacturers (especially The Ravesteijn factory) made a 6”x6” tile especially for the British Victorian market and even incorporated Arts and Crafts designs into their ranges. They are therefore perfect in any Victorian setting. The designs are timeless and also continue to be a popular choice for contemporary projects.
