"stufe ad olle" - correct term in English

Recommended Posts

good morning to all of you

I took some pictures of "stufe ad olle" (in Italian) antice. They would be pictures of tiled stoves. The exact description in English and possibly in "British English" how should it be? And any synonyms.
I have not yet arranged the images, I still have them in raw format and therefore I insert an image that is not mine. Google image capture (wikipedia) ...
thanks to those who want to suggest the exact translation ...

"tiled stoves" as you said yourself conveys the sort of thing you are going to see - but it's worth putting the Italian in as a tag surely as well if that is the accepted term?

 

Suggest "ornate stoves" as well.

Google "ceramic stove pot" and see what you get. Not the correct translation. It won't bring up what she is trying to describe. https://www.google.com/search?q=ceramic+stove+pot&client=firefox-b-1-ab&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiW6Jmm3qLaAhVJja0KHS8MAvwQ_AUICygC&biw=1806&bih=1050

I think I’d want the word ‘faience’ in there somewhere. I don’t know Italian, but the word may be of Italian origin. There’s a word in the Wiki entry that looks close. Perhaps a place name?

Lorenza, this can often help, but not always:  https://translate.google.com

 

 

Hello And,   yes, I always use this tool, even if it is not perfect, however it works quite well. I'm not very familiar with English. In northern Italy, German has a preference for German as a second language ... (we are close to Austria ... on the contrary, we were Germans ... (I am not a secessionist ..:).;))
