Stovax Tube-lined Fireplace Tiles
AT PRESENT STOVAX TUBE-LINED FIREPLACE TILES ARE SPECIAL ORDERS THAT TAKE FROM 3 WEEKS TO 3 MONTHS.
Tube-lining is a method of decorating tiles that was developed in the late 1800's. It requires a high degree of skill, as the outline of the design is piped by hand onto each tile. Once the piping has dried the colour, again by hand, is applied to each separate area to produce an exquisite work of art. The tiles are then fired in a kiln.
The "Rose & Bud" is an exception. It is a Raised Line product which means the outline is embossed on the body of the tile as it is cast. The "Rose & Bud" is a faithful reproduction of this style. As these tiles take considerable time to produce, their cost is much more then standard decorated tiles.
