The original ceramic tiles that are seen on the sides of the historic buildings today were given to the city and installed in 1962 as a gift from Spain. The tiles reflect the names that were given to those streets under Spain’s rule from 1762 to 1803. They serve has a beautiful reminder of Spain’s influence on the architecture and culture of the beloved City of New Orleans & the Historic French Quarter -
I have tried to capture the essence of the old tiles by taking photographs of them, applying copies of the those photographs to ceramic tiles and then coating them in a thick High Gloss Epoxy that is both heat and water resistant.............Using this process keeps the integrity of the actual "tile" look and feel. there is a hanger on the backside of each tile.
-PLEASE NOTE BEFORE PURCHASING THIS PRODUCT... That these tiles are not perfect. The images may not always be 100% straight or balanced because I use photographed images. Colors may be shaded and sometime faded in spots. However, the finish will always be clean and smooth and they will always be a true representation of the feel and flavor of the beloved French Quarter. Some tiles may not be as white as you see in the photo's due to lighting, age of photo's i use and other imperfections captured in the photo's that i use.

This product was shipped and delivered on time. Out of everything I've ordered recently, this was the one I was most excited about and the most disappointed in. I ordered 3 6x8" tiles. Santa Anna is straight for the most part. But Borbon and Orleans are REALLY crooked, so much so that that borders are running off the tiles and there are gaps on one side of the tile but not on the other. I think it's more a problem with the angle of the original photo than the transfer onto the tile. I ordered these 3 to see if I wanted to order more but I'm going to have to pass. All the great reviews on here confuse me as to why mine turned out the way they did.

Loved it! This is one of those items where the photo really doesn't to it justice. A terrific addition to my NOLA themed bathroom!

So cute. This made the perfect gift for Mother's Day for my mother-in-law, a New Orleans lady. It looks perfect on her outdoor patio wall and we hope to purchase more!
