Antique Tile

I picked up this wonderful unmarked antique tile recently.
I love the hand-painted pomegranates.

What I love is how the rug below brings out all those rich colors! Finding these small little treasures are such fun. I get so excited when I find something small and special like this. Sometimes I carry it around the house with me and just stare at it. :)

This is a gorgeous find. I happen to love botanicals. You are a lucky gal for scoring such a beauty.

I saw a tile on your blog site "I picked up this wonderful unmarked antique tile" I happen to have the same, a set of 10 I bought from Hive Antiques, Cambridge, England. I was told by the owner they are T. G. & F. Booth tiles, 1886. They are not marked but he is an expert on Victorian/Edwardian tiles. They were made to decorate the sides of fire grates. some time ago I also saw the exact same ones but in sepia on the Leominster Reclamation website
