Panel of 16 Camellia flower tiles
16 Portuguese tiles decorated with Camellia flower and a Finial (hip-knob) design, taken from architecture, in opposite corner. This design can be found at Ponte de Lima in Portugal as well as in Itaparica, Brasil, I took last picture in Portugal in 2011. More information on these tiles in: J.M. Dossantos Simoes, volume 1, page 44. Some chips to corners and sides and some imperfections in the glaze. Some light variation in color blue, presumably created during the firing process. Portuguese antique tiles in general are made primitively and therefore size, shape and thickness can vary a little. Backside of the tiles is cut as can be seen on the pictures; this is usually the case with 17th century Portuguese tiles.
