Bespoke tiles

Our Delft Collections (see the menu on the left) provide over 100 carefully researched and selected delft designs. But if you are looking for something different we also offer a bespoke service.

Over the years we have produced hundreds of different designs for individual clients. Sometimes a design that has a personal connection. Sometimes the client has a particular theme in mind - we have for example produced a set of 24 different 'farmyard' designs. Or they are restoring a property and want to remain faithful to the original style or simply have fallen in love with delft designs in a book or at a gallery.

Like The Collections, all our bespoke tiles are individually hand painted and prices are between £15 and £20 depending on the complexity of the design.

To give you some ideas or inspiration we have included just a few of the bespoke tiles we have produced for clients in the 'showcase' below. We would be delighted to discuss your ideas or plans whatever they are! So please do get in touch.

  • African Animals
    Green delft tiles of african animals - feel free to choose your own favourites...
  • Luttrell Psalter
    One of set of 6 tiles created for a client based on the decoration in the 14c Luttrell Psalter. This is an example of how we can make tiles based on particular theme chosen by the client.
  • Bridge of Sighs
    The clients chose various tiles from the collections but also asked us to make one showing the Bridge of Sighs in Cambridge where she had accepted his proposal.
  • Chinoiserie
    The chinoiserie style was a strong influence on early delft potters - not only was blue on white pottery brought back to Europe from China by early explorers and merchant adventurers but so were extravagant tales! We produced a set of 24 designs based on carefully researched original designs for a client using chinoiserie as a basis for delft tiles.
  • Basket tiles
    Four examples from a set of tiles depicting traditional delft basket tiles
  • Simple Delft Animals
