Members Limited Edition

#271Rabbit

Free Gift with Membership

 

The 3x3 Spanish Rabbit, # 271 in both the 1906 & 1913 Catalogues of the Moravian Pottery & Tile Works was freely adapted from a 14th century hand-painted tile illustrated in a book owned by Henry Chapman Mercer.  The book by Robert Forrer “Geschichte der europäischen Fliesen-Keramik: vom Mittelalter bis zum Jahre 1900” was published in 1901.  Mercer utilized a number of designs from this book.
