This tile, designed by Christopher Dresser and made in 1873, exemplifies the Aesthetic Movement ethos of the home as artistic expression and sanctuary from modern life. Tiles such as this decorated the interiors of the middle- and upper-classes alike: they were intended to be affordable and beautiful so that the movement’s ideal of a well-designed domestic life could be accessible to all.
