Outstanding workmanship is evident on this great vintage tile.    Notice the textured background of deep cobalt with a stunning gold overlay.  The parrot, perched on a branch, has six matte glaze colors.  The factory holes on the side edges near the top were intended to be used for hanging.   On this tile, the holes don’t go all the way thru to the back of the tile.

8  7/8″ square x 5/8″ thick

Great condition; has a teeny nick on the top inside edge
