Modernista tile

Piece that forms part of a modernista set of seven ceramic tiles.

This modernista tile dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries is decorated with vegetation. 

It is one of seven pieces which show yellow fruits and leaves against an ochre background, ringed by a blue tape. Clay tiles like this one were used to decorate the walls of homes not only in Callela but also across all Catalonia.

They feature a range of motifs, from traditional crafts as a memory of the past, or ornamental vegetation.
