Tropico, Glendale, CA  1920-1928

Gold glaze contracts sharply with the matte black and red-orange on this vintage California tile.  This comes from Norman Karlson’s collection, but does not appear in his Encyclopedia of American Art Tiles.  This company was in business only three years before being bought out by Gladding McBean.
