Earthenware ceramic tiles were an important form of architectural decoration in the Timurid period, which lasted from the 14th to the 15th centuries in Central Asia and parts of the Middle East. Earthenware tiles were used to decorate the exterior and interior of buildings, and were often glazed in a variety of colours. The Timurid period was a time of great cultural and artistic flourishing, and earthenware tiles played a significant role in the decoration of many of the architectural masterpieces of the time.


Ceramic tiles are thin slabs of clay that have been fired in a kiln and glazed. They are used for a variety of purposes, including flooring, wall tiles, and decorative accents. Ceramic tiles are durable, easy to clean, and resistant to water.
