these unusual vintage art pottery tiles, circa 1950s, were made and handpainted by S. Christian of Denmark ~ although meant originally to be used as coasters, they'd be wonderful re-purposed as a sink back splash or whatever creation you can imagine

each measures nearly 3" x 3"

they consist of 6 different women in colorful traditional dress with handwritten identification by the designer such as Skane, Smaland, Uppland, Halsingland, Dalarue, and one I can't quite make out--areas, I believe, that were once part of Denmark but some of which are now included in what we know as Norway and Sweden

cork-lined bottom stamped "S. Christian Denmark Handpainted"

excellent vintage condition--no cracks or crazing and the cork is like new (the tiles have what appear to be a smudgy look to them, but all of these tiles by S. Christian are like this, part of his technique)

international buyers, contact me about a shipping price to your country
