From research we believe this tile to be from the early years of the Rookwood Factory, which was located in Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.A. The factory was located at 207 Eastern Ave. until 1893.

This is An Absolutely Fabulous Example of Early American Art Pottery from the Art Nouveau Movement of which the Arts & Crafts Movement was part. It is too early to be factory signed. Only after circa 1900, did many of the pottery factories begin to sign their wares with identifying factory cartouche or incised marks.

It is then placed in a Bronze Secession Movement or Arts and Crafts Frame which has Four Claw Feet; the Handles of the frame are Serpent Heads and Tails, with Elaborate Scroll Floral and Leaf Work. The bronze frame is also totally hand crafted.

The tile is engine turned, as seen from the photo; the backing that is applied when assembled is of copper. The tile has a wonderful glaze with very a naturalistic floral design which is hand painted underglaze.

COMMENT: This is an absolutely fantastic connoisseur collector piece for the advanced collector! Guaranteed to please the collector who has everything, does not really need it, but who has to have it because of its representation of beauty, rarity and exquisite depiction of the Arts & Crafts Movement, at its apex in America, in terms of pottery.

Definitely Investment Quality! This type of glaze was only executed by a handful of potters at the time in the United States. It was customary at Rookwood Pottery for the decorators to incise their initials or monograms on the bottoms of the pieces painted by them.

CONDITION: Excellent! There is no damage or restoration of any kind to the tile or bronze frame.
