This is a great tour for understanding how Henry Mercer got into the “tile” making business. The tour approach is a nice change of pace because after a short film you are left to take a self guided tour. During the tour, Crafts(men and women)...More

Today we visited the Moravian Tile Works in Doylestown. Admission was $ 4.00 (seniors). I think the regular price is $ 6.00. This was probably the most worthwhile money I’ve spent at a museum or historic site ever! The building is a tile factory, built...More

The tile works sits off the road and is sometimes forgotten. However, this is definitely one of the best places to visit in Doylestown. Be sure to take the tour. Brouse the tiles and take one or two home with you. Order a set and...More

A visit to Doylestown is not complete without a visit and tour of the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. The building looks like an old medieval castle made out of what else? Clay! This is still a working handcrafted ceramic tile factory made in the...More

You don't have to be a historian to enjoy experiencing the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. The best part of the tour is the gift shop. Lots of great gift ideas that are unique and made with care.

Must have been a great tile studio at one time. Still active, but needs new artist blood. Albeit, there are constraints expected in the 'Mercer / Moravian art tile". Any change, and the 'signature' could be lost.

This is a really interesting glimpse into truly handmade artifacts. The factory and shop are absolutely original. That means not particularly appropriate for small kids. So many opportunities for touching stuff or bumping or damaging vintage fixtures. Uneven floors, rough wood everywhere, generally dusty and...More

The tour is very informative and fun, especially if you enjoy unique architecture. The tiles in the gift shop will tempt you towards bankruptcy. :)

They had tons of designs so my bet would be that they have a rabbit. All the tiles are beautiful.
