Designed between 1912-1922, the Imperial Hotel put Frank Lloyd Wright on the map as a nascent global architect. The Hotel immediately became an important landmark when it survived the great Kanto earthquake the first day the hotel opened its doors in 1923. For decades the Hotel served as an architectural icon for the city of Tokyo until it was demolished in 1968.

This tile is inspired by the iconic peacock design used in the Hotel rug, furniture and wall tapestry. The peacock theme was recurring throughout the ornamented hotel, also to be found as a carved mural in “Peacock Alley,” the lavish main lobby.

Approximate dimensions: 8" x 8"
