American Encaustic Tiling Co., Zanesville, OH 1875-1935
Remarkable vintage panel by AET consisting of six 6×6 tiles. There are so many wonderful details to catch the eye, especially the overall design where one is viewing the outdoor scene thru an archway. The female figure, sitting on a rock among the trees, is lovingly petting the large dog. High glazed brown tones mix with beige and tan to accentuate the three-dimensional feel. This could possibly have been designed by Herman Mueller, who, before forming the Mosaic Tile Company, worked at AET from 1887 to 1894. This is shown in Norman Karlson’s Encyclopedia of American Art Tiles, Region 3, page 19.
