S & S Art Deco Tile Set

Solon & Schemmel, San Jose, CA  1921-1936

S & S dominated the market for high-end tiles in the Bay Area and their Art Deco tiles were used in most of the luxury high-rise apartment buildings that were built in SF after the mid-twenties.   Here is a wonderful example of an S&S deco pattern on a vintage tile set.   Smooth, glossy glaze is thin enough to have the clay show through and the design is simple, yet elegant.

17  1/4″ tall x 5  7/8″ wide x up to 3/4″ thick

Great condition; has 3 glaze skips on the right side (these do not take away from the value), and small chip on bottom of middle tile.  Signed, never set.

Qty = 1 set (we have access to more sets)

$195 set of 3 tiles
