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
