Tin-glazed earthenware polychrome tile panel of four 6″ tiles and a 3″ make-up piece. Decorated in polychrome with honeysuckle, spotty buds and tendrils on a blue ground. One of a pair.

De Morgan cleverly designed tiles that would work as stand-alone patterns or that, when placed side by side, would connect and flow to create a larger frieze. This upright pattern was possibly designed as a tile frieze suitable to be used in a fire surround.

The flat stylised flowers, leaves, and buds in this pattern are reminiscent of William Morris's design idiom. It was De Morgan's intention to create ceramic patterns that would complement Morris interiors.
