Flint Zodiac Tile/Sagittarius

Flint Faience & Tile Co., Flint, MI  1921-1933

This is an awesome cuenca tile depicting the astrological sign of Sagittarius.  It is part of a Zodiac series created by this amazing company.  The rich, vellum glazes in creamy earth and jewel tones coupled with the unique Mezo-American-inspired design makes this tile a real standout.  Flint Faience was a subsidiary of AC Spark Plug production kilns.  Flint Faience ware was of a notably superlative quality.  An article in the May 2003 issue of “Style 1900″ was entitled “Flint Faience Tiles:  The Aristocrat of Tiledom.”
