Ceramic tiles have been made in and around Delft, The Netherlands, since the 16th century. StoryTiles continues the tradition by creating miniature art-on-tiles. All tiles are baked in traditional Dutch ovens at a high temperature, what makes them heat and water resistant. Each design is unique, as it is hand baked and designed. The delicate art pieces come in very cool cardboard packaging, with a nifty hanging system. Almost all StoryTiles are available in three sizes: Small: 10 x 10cm Medium: 13 x 13cm* Large: 20 x 20cm *This size is equivalent to the original Dutch tile. The original design of this Old Dutch tile dates back to 1700 and is part of the tile collection of Kramer Art & Antiques Amsterdam.
