Rare Solon & Schemmel House Tile

On December 4, 2013, in California Tiles, by nancy

S & S (Solon & Schemmel), San Jose, CA  1921-1936

Soft running glazes cover this rare scenic tile from S & S.  We have never seen another S & S tile made this way!  It has a smooth surface with multi-colored satiny glazes.  The scene is a charming house with palm trees in the front yard.  This same tile appears in Norman Karlson’s Encyclopedia of American Art Tile, Region 5, page 196.

5  3/4″ square x 5/8″ thick

Excellent condition; signed, never set

Qty = 1
