Line started issuing ceramic tiles to their Mariner Society members in
1995. The first series was a set depicting windmills and consequent
series have had subjects from Dutch national costumes to ships of the
line (6 series) to the poster images from the late 2000-s. All tiles
have been 4" x 4" in size and most of them have been backed by
cardboard so they could serve as coasters. They have become a very much
desired collectible. Below you will find a complete listing with the
Mariner Society tiles issued by the Line over the years. Those tiles I
do not have in my collection have been marked as "need". I have many
doubles and am always willing to trade or buy to extend/complete my
collection. You can reach me at tiemen @ halpostcards . com (spaces
inserted to prevent autosearch by webbots). Each tile has been given an
ID for easy identification.
tiles were manufactured by different manufacturers over the years and
where appropriate, the backs of the tiles will be shown below.
