Dutch Art Reproductions on ceramic tile tableaus
We reproduce artworks on ceramic tiles using a modern technique which ensures beautiful vibrant colours. We handcraft and customize all tableaus in our Amsterdam studio. Each tile tableau comes with its own unique identification number, registered with our company, and a certificate of authenticity. We use the finest quality images and work in close cooperation with the museums and artists, to create the perfect reproduction for you.
In 2019 we received a certificate from the Amsterdam Made organization. This approval is granted to makers in the Amsterdam region who produce superior products that adhere to the following core principles: creativity, innovation, sustainability and craftsmanship.
All ceramic art tile tableaus are made in-house. Would you like a different size, a unique design or your own photograph, image, painting or artwork? We can make to measure, customize, and create your own bespoke tile tableau. Contact us for more information.
With its wings stretched and its neck poised, the swan protects her eggs against a dog swimming nearby. Showing the scene from a low angle emphasises the bird's power. The inscriptions are a later addition and have a political message. They refer to the Dutch political leader Johan de Witt, who defended the Dutch state against its many enemies.

Care for your product
Always handle the ceramic gloss tiles with care. They are for interior decorative use. You can clean your tile tableau with a soft cloth and a non-abrasive cleaning product like glassex. Do not hang the tableau in direct sunlight or fading will occur over the years. These tiles are not suitable to mount in a hot area, e.g. above an Aga or behind a stove.
