Wonderful Retro 'Bovril' wall mounted ceramic tile, truly stunning. The tile is a beautiful picture of the Bovril advert from many years ago which says 'Bovril for Health, Strength & Beauty' with a lady playing golf which has a very nostalgic feel to it. It is ideal for many rooms in the house and a great addition to the kitchen.
These beautiful and unique artistic tiles are hand crafted, hand painted and fired with brilliantly colourful and complex glazes.
The artistic process is extremely labour intensive. The first step is to draw the image on to the rough tile surface and then carefully apply the relief work, which creates the unique three-dimensional outline. The ceramics are then hand painted with several layers of glazes that enrich the textures and vibrant colours, because of this no two tiles are the same which adds to the beauty of these.
The tiles are then fired in kilns for 24 hours at temperatures reaching 1000 degrees Celsius (1800 Fahrenheit). A full day in the kilns is needed to ensure that the artwork sets into the body of the tile, creating a permanent image that will never dull or fade.
The tiles are mounted onto a felt board with a hook for hanging which helps you to incorporate these stunning items into your home decor. The tiles can be used as a normal ceramic tile incorporated into your home kitchen or bathroom tiling by removing the backing and fixing as a normal ceramic tile.
The dimensions of this tile are 11 inches x 14 inches in a portrait orientation. I have many other tiles to compliment this one in my eBay shop.
