American Encaustic Tiling Company, Zanesville, OH 1875-1935
Lovely signed antique portrait relief tile depicts Summer (Ete) as a classical goddess of bounty wearing a wreath of wheat stalks, nicely modeled. The rich glossy mocha glaze intensifies the depth and many details of this Victorian tile. Crazing adds character to this wonderful tile. We also have the Autumn version. See this tile in the Encyclopedia of American Art Tiles, Region 3, page 26.
