Majolica floor tiles are usually interesting as they often depict weird and wonderful creatures that are either creations of the artists mind or real beasts that are not known to man (well not known to me at least). Below is a selection of some of the Majolica floor tiles that I have come across, these are either 14th Century Majolica tiles from the Palais Des Papes in Avignon or 16th Century Flemish Majolica tiles from The Vyne near Basingstoke.
Please feel free to post in the comment section if you know what animals the tiles are supposed to represent.
|A scaled beast.|
|Two freaky beasts getting it on?|
|An odd human-like skull.|
|A shelled creature.|
|A 16th century elf?|
|A weird fish ready for a kiss?|
|Some form of dog?|
|A young Nessie?|
