Dutch tiles

In the Netherlands we have a long tradition of tile-making, 
unfortunately they are used less and less on new houses.
I think they are mainly used indoors nowadays, for kitchens for example.
But tiles were used as decoration for the outside as well,
see here, for your entrance:

Plain and functional as floor tiles

Beautifully decorated with details


And combined together!
In lots of Dutch cities, and villages, you can find these examples. 
Fortunately they are often treasured by their owners.... or salvaged by architecture lovers.
