They are very good, Tom.
Tom Wilson: They had more panels - another one is coming up later.
Some of those are really beautiful!
Tom Wilson: They had many more on display, too.

I like the middle top one best, Tom
Tom Wilson: I imagine that was used as a kind of highlight in a panel of ordinary patterns.

Very nice but I cannot help but notice the very prominent swastika, reversed, Nazi style!
Tom Wilson: Looks odd to those of a certain generation smile However, both left and right facing swastikas were used in antquity - the Nazis weren't the first - see Wikipedia.

One of those patterns will probably not be produced again Tom.
Tom Wilson: As I said to Chris -, both left and right facing swastikas were used in antquity - the Nazis weren't the first - see Wikipedia.
Fine examples and interesting to see one that was once a sign of hope and good that became a sign for hatred

As you have indicated, I saw tiles, tiles and tiles in Portugal. But, we will get to that later.
Tom Wilson: I look forward to seeing your picc, Louis
i like the floral and geometric patterns, Tom. nice shot of them.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush
Lots to choose from.
Tom Wilson: Indeed, more panels too - this was in the former sales room of the factory, where buyers would come to select their tiles. The factory actually still produces some tiles but, mainly, I think, for tourist buying.

Beautiful designs - I would like to visit this museum.
Samplers are fun, Tom. Lots to choose from here.
