Seller: mcdionysos (2.485) 100%, Location: San Diego, California, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 264465903690 Preface: I am a self-confessed antique nut!!!! When considering mine or others' prices, PONDER.....Is this worth a quarter, 50 cents or a dollar for every year it has survived? So this object that I may be offering, even at 50 cents/year would usually be worth more than my opening bid! Indeed, many antiques cost much more originally, adjusted for inflation. Not to mention that most antiques appreciate in value! Just consider, my dear friends. Welcome tile fans! Beginning to sell my mostly LIFE-LONG tile collection, bit by bit, stay tuned....many more to list! Most collected over MANY years---Don't miss your chance at a one of a kind opportunity. When they're gone, they're gone! Act now! Antique Victorian "America"Minton Hollins & Co. TileEmaux Ombrants Design Underglaze brown & turquoise on white biscuit, dust-pressed tile. (6 inch X 6 inch size tile) Not often seen series. Believe there were four to the series representing four continents: this being "America" with an Indian maiden and stag. Done in the emaux ombrants style:In pottery and tile-making, enamels in which the design is modeled in intaglio and tinted glaze is poured in to a level with the surface. Done in beautiful chocolate brown glaze and deep turquoise/aqua for a striking color combination! Brown is closer to pic two and the aqua/turquoise somewhere between pic 1 & 2. You will not be disappointed at the vibrancy of color! Yes, is damaged but the central area is still lovely. Could frame or restore to minimize damage. Scuffing could possibly be touched up or polished slightly. At any rate, a good "cabinet piece" to have until one better comes along. You may be aware that the Nineteenth century was a "Golden Age" for tile making in England, as they invented and perfected the steam press assembly line-type process of dust-pressing clay dust and printing designs. Previously, tiles were laboriously hand-painted individually on blanks. Colors WERE often added to these by hand after printing (So-called "print & tint"). Victorians loved the sanitary nature of tiles and the industry flourished, being produced in all manner of styles and designs. Hence, it is a fertile field for any new collector. HAVE FUN!!
