    Tile, ca. 1905. Haven't found a place to put it just yet, even though I've had it since last year. It'll probably end up leaning against a shelf or something.

      Oh My Gosh. Love this, just love it. Tulipy-thing goodness. (I thought it looked slighty fleur de lis from the thumbnail, but no.) Lucky you, getting to look at this everyday.

      Gorgeous tile. You've done a superb job capturing the delicate translucency of the glaze. do you happen to know where it came from? It looks very Arts & Crafts.

      You know . . . I am fairly certain I can find a space for this in my house. :)
      It's hard to believe the colors, coming from 1905. Great find! Thanks for sharing!

      Love the textures and colours. And no - please don't lean it up against a shelf. Please hang it on the wall. It deserves to be seen. Because... look. It's two flower creatures - women of the era - a tall, slim one in back and a shorter, curvier one in front. Each stands straight as a poker and holds a hand protectively to her breast. As if she's just seen something shocking.

      Thanks y'all!

      p2: I wonder if that's a good thing... ;-)

      Mayr: I look at it every day, but I want to put it somewhere where I will get to look at it without having to move other things to get a look at it!

      KK: Ack! I wasn't able to get where it came from. I bought it from an acquaintance of mine at the shop I used to work at.

      eden: I'm sure you could. I've got just a 9' by 11' bedroom to cram all my stuff in!

      artsy_T: Thanks! Glad you do!

      McNeney: Hehe! I love your interpretation of the motifs. Rather than seeing something shocking, perhaps the two ladies have their hands to their breast as if they had just fallen in love with someone - perhaps they're a little too languid to have just been shocked. :-)

      Art Nouveau is charming. I wish this was mine.
