These are simply beautiful antique majolica art tiles! The raised relief design is strong and the coloring gives the appearance of natural shadowing, looking to be slightly lighter in areas in contrast to the darker olive green background. The glaze is original with rich patina, has a warm glow and shines. These 6 pieces will make a nice addition to a tile back splash, in a frame or arranged in a wall grouping. There are a few small flea-bites on the edges as would be expected with age. No worries, no distraction to the ey.
IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE FAIENCE / MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
