Malibu Potteries, MalibuCA  1926-1932

How does one begin to describe this amazing vintage tile?  A pair of parrots are perched on a never-ending vine intertwined with dragons.  The tile is deeply molded and has matte polychrome glazing.   The artistic tiles from this company are all the result of Rufus Keeler, a remarkable chemist and tile maker.   He brought his talent and designs with him from CALCO.   The last photo is a page from an old Malibu catalog showing this tile in an installation.
