Gorgeous vintage ceramic tile set or cup coasters made from genuine Turkish Travertine Stone Tiles. This ceramic tile coaster set from the "Aegean Series" consists of 8 decoupage tiles with original illustrations from the early 19th century. The coasters are varnished and cork backed.
The illustrations were found from Marcus Elieser Bloch (1723–1799) who was a German medical doctor and naturalist. Although he had limited education, he became a teacher in Hamburg, learned to read and write German, Latin and studied anatomy. He later settled in Berlin where he became a physician. Always interested in natural history, he amassed a private collection of natural objects. He is generally considered one of the most important ichthyologists of the 18th century, and wrote many papers on natural history, comparative anatomy, and physiology.
This travertine stone coaster set of four is perfect to use as beach house coasters, modern coasters and beverage coasters. If you’re looking for tile coasters, this set makes the perfect gift for friends and family. Every stone coaster is custom made. The standard size for this series is 4" x 4" (10 x 10 cm).
