Qajar tiles are glazed ceramic tiles or stone architectural ornaments that were produced during Iran's Qajar dynasty (1789-1925). They are known for their intricate designs and creative innovations that combined traditional craftsmanship with artistic expression. Qajar tiles were often used to decorate the upper borders of interiors in a continuous frieze and can be found in collections at the British Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
