An Art Nouveau Fireplace Surround Tile of a Rose and Ribbon - Ballarat

An Art Nouveau Fireplace Surround Tile of a Rose and Ribbon - Ballarat
This beautiful azure blue Art Nouveau tile featuring a stylised yellow rose with brown leaves and a ribbon appears in a fireplace surround. I was walking past a recycled building supply merchant's premises on Lydiard Street in the provincial city of Ballarat, when I just happened to notice its brilliant blue background colour peering out from behind a rusty piece of a verandah. I quickly scuttled in to photograph it; which was no mean feat as I was unable to remove the heavy pieces of metal in front of it. The results, I think, were wroth it. The fireplace surround dates to circa 1908.
