And unbelievable work of art now available today, this wonderful Grueby Faience Tile!! The selection of colors are matched by the wonderful application of the glaze creating a curdled affect especially seen in the green border surrounding the center bird. The thought is that this particular tile was produced as an accent tile in a display possibly for a large New England mansion or a public building such as a carriage station.
It is unmarked but guaranteed original Greuby Faience. I do not believe this tile was ever installed, however, since there is really no indication of original cement in the crevices/divots on the back. The tile measures approximately 12 1/4 by 8 and 1 1/2 thick.I would have to rate this tile as in factory original condition with no damage or repairs noted. I did notice a tiny fleck on the back rim as pictured which I feel is immaterial, mentioned for accuracy sake. A fantastic item for the astute collector; one of which I most likely will never see again. Please view all pictures as they are considered part of the description. I will be posting numerous fine examples of glass, pottery and porcelain in the near future.
