There are two distinct branches of Art Deco design… one is the minimalistic geometric school of thought and the other is the more decorative floral branch. While I lean more towards the geometric designs, I still admire the floral designs and in particular their simplified forms and symmetry ♥ The amazing thing about these tiles is that they were hand painted. Factory workers stamped blank tiles with a stencil with charcoal and painted every detail with great precision. Amazing craftspersonship. There are still a few factories in the UK that produce restoration and custom designs in this manner.
