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

Solon was responsible for the designs, color schemes and glazes of all the tiles produced by S&S (and later by its successor, S & L). He was a master of color, developing his own glazes with a distinctive look.  Schemmel was a businessman and the  two men created a remarkable business that produced some distinguished commissions.   This vintage tile depicts a stylized lily pad motif that has five glaze colors with wide resist lines and a smooth surface.
