Portugal Antique Azulejo Tile Replica Stainless Steel RING Cortegaça OVAr Portugal - US size 10 1/4,, UK size U Unisex

$42.00

These tiles are located on the facade of a very, very old building in the lovely town of Ovar. To my dismay, many old buildings have fallen in disrepair and this is an attempt to preserve a little of the patrimony of Portugal before it's too late.

Ovar was founded in 1251! Surrounded by lagoons and saltpans, Ovar is conveniently located between the northern cities of Porto and Aveiro.
It is an unusual town where some of the women still wear black pork-pie hats and walk around the streets barefoot. Many of the local inhabitants are descendants of Phoenician sailors who settled around these shores because they were attracted by the purity of the sky and the excellent fishing to be had.

The first documents mentioning Cortegaça were in 973! In 1198, the 2nd King of Portugal's wife died. His name was D. Sancho. He fell in love with D. Maria Pais Ribeira or "Ribeirinha" and they had 4 children. When the King died, he gave Cortegaça to her.

In 1876, Cortegaça became part of Ovar with the promise that a road would be built joining Cortegaça, Esmoriz, and Maceda. "The New Church" began construction in 1910 (see photo) has azulejo tiles from 1921 to 1923

(see photo of actual Facade)

US size 10 1/4.

Wear a Piece of History!

!This gorgeous ring is US size 9 and is stainless steel.
Please note that the ring is stainless steel, but should be removed when washing hands as water might damage the finish on the tiles over time. Chemicals in certain lotions and sunscreens might also damage the finish on the tiles. Care should be taken to avoid these.



Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have.

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.

Thank you,
Atrio
