Silver Earrings Tile Portuguese Portugal 16th Century Hispano-Arab Azulejo Arista 925 FRAMED Monastery of Santa Clara in Coimbra, 1314 479b

$25.00

Established in 1290, Coimbra's University is one of the oldest in Europe.

The city lies on a hill with it's cobblestone streets and winding roads. In this wonderful city, the university students wear black capes and you can still find women washing their clothes in the river.

These tiles are replicas from the Monastery of Santa Clara in Coimbra. Construction began in the year 1314 and for CENTURIES, most of it was under water because the land flooded. Between 1995 and 2000, the area was excavated and this is what they found!

The submerged and recently flooded bottom floor walls and ceiling used to be covered in tiles from the 16th century, most of which are lost or stolen. They were Arab Designs made in Spain.

Check out this photo of what the Monastery looked like for CENTURIES!

The tiles are approximately 2 cm square. WATERPROOF, lightweight and with tile design on BOTH sides! 925 Silver Framed!

All my tiles are replicas made of polymer clay where the image actually becomes part of the clay through baking. No glue is used in the process. The pieces become waterproof and scratch resistant. Due to the handmade and hand shaped nature of each tile, slight variations will occur, as no two pieces are alike.
