Muresque Tiles, Oakland, CA  1925-1934

This scenic ceramic tile is like a painting full of detailed images.   The courtyard pavers are different shapes and sizes, the tile roof is outlined, archways on the old Spanish-style building appear distressed, and the tree in the foreground is nicely portrayed.  Many matte glazes were used; however the dabs of yellow are probably not original to the tile.  Can be framed or set into any installation.   Signed, never set.

12″ x 8″ x 3/4″ thick

Very good condition; minor surface wear, small chip on leaves
