California Faience, Berkeley, CA 1915-1950
Vintage tea tile was made using the cuenca technique with raised lines separating the glazes. The desert scene features a blooming yucca plant against a pale blue sky. Tea tiles are round with glazed edges and originally made as decorative hot plates. This design dates back between 1919-1933, according to Kirby Brown, grandson of William V. Bragdon, one of the founders of this creative company.
