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
