S & S Early Landscape Tile

On November 8, 2013, in California Tiles, by nancy

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

We know by the impressed marking on the back of this rare tile that it dates between 1921-1926.  A simple landscape scene has a rustic feel on this vintage red-clay tile.   Albert Solon was trained in art and ceramics from childhood and grew up in England, where his grandfather was art director and his father head designer at Minton’s.
