The history of the Tin Tiles collection
The eternal elegance of the victorian style
Usually called "Tin Ceiling Tiles", since the end of the 19th century, Victorian tiles were part of a decorative trend extremely popular up to the 1930's. This decorative trend extended all over the untited states, Canada, Australia and over the former imperial colonies highly influenced by the English culture such as South Africa.
Originally composed of a thick tin plate, the Victorian ceiling tiles used as paneling, were a popular alternative to plaster because of its moderate price. They were traditionally painted in white color to simulate the molded plaster or even the appearance of handmade sculptures.
