Castles

Castle on a tile, coat of arms of the Comune di LivornoWe have already seen one of these fancy plaques in “Around the School”. They are usually found on any building owned by the municipality. In this collage you can easily see that they are slightly different and probably hand made. I have tried in vain to find when and how these tiles were made.

They are quite attractive...I'll bet it's a local artist...or maybe they are a product of an art class at one of your schools.

Jacob is probably onto something here.

How interesting that you cannot find out anything about the tiles. Let us know when you do find out anything. MB

Pretty, but reminds me of those tests in school that made us find the differences in these pictures.

Reminds me of politicians:They are all different but, they are all the same.

It would be fun to use these tiles in random places! They do seem to be handmade. Hope you can uncover the mystery!
