This beautiful group of hand made tile uses historically correct scenes for its line of
wall tile from the center of Holland.  The tiles are made in a medium sized factory in
the historic area of Delft.

The bisque is hand made.  When a sufficient amount of tiles have been made they
are stacked in groups of 30 tiles high and then a heavy weight is laid on top and the
stack is allowed to dry for approximately three weeks.  Upon completion of the drying
process they are fired.

Once a fired tile has been created it goes thru the next stage of a tin bath which
creates the traditional Dutch background color of the tile on the face of the tile only.  
The corner designs are then silk screened into place and then the decorative scene
is placed on the tile by way of an appliqué.

This line is a perfect alternative for those that love the look of the Dutch tiles but may
not be in the market for the higher cost or the waiting time for the custom made Dutch
tiles by our series H.

All of our products come from the regions of the world where they originated and are produced in a manner
that comes as close as possible to the original method in which they were made in the past. We have
strived to avoid the temptation that has enticed so many to find cheaper and less than original copies of a
great product.  If at some future date we were to bring in products from China or India it would be items that
represent those countries’ great cultural history not an imitation of one of another area or era.
