California Faience, Berkeley, CA  1915-1950

Vintage tea tile was made using the cuenca technique with raised lines separating the glazes.   The desert scene features a blooming yucca plant against a pale blue sky.   Tea tiles are round with glazed edges and originally made as decorative hot plates.   This design dates back between 1919-1933, according to Kirby Brown, grandson of William V. Bragdon, one of the founders of this creative company.
