Water lily

An Art Nouveau style tile showing a water lily, from the Netherlands.  I'm not certain whether this is part of the collection, but I do know that the Dutch Tile Museum has an extensive collection of over 11,000 tiles.  You can see the collection online but I have to say it's not all that well displayed and you have to wade through page after page, like a catalogue.  There are some beauties there though.

  1. I used your link to go to the Dutch site. I saw the beautiful peacock. I need you to translate though.

    1. As far as Dutch is concerned, you're more or less on your own. If it sounds or looks a bit like German I may be able to help, but not a lot. :)


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
