Seller: mcdionysos (2.422) 100%, Location: San Diego, California, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 264197386485 Preface: I am a self-confessed antique nut!!!!When considering mine or others' prices, PONDER.....Is this worth 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 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! Open to reasonable offers--don't be shy! Classy! Antique Isaac Broome DesignedProvidential Tile WorksEmbossed Majolica Tile(6 inch X 6 inch dust-pressed tile) A rare and VERY desirable tile designed by one of the important artists of the American tile industry. Though this is not signed by Broome, expert David Rago identified this in an article "American Art Pottery" as being designed by Isaac Broome (one of a pair: lady and gentleman with the lady having the Broome monogram). After Broome left Providential, he modeled the same pair but dressed them in large lace collars for Beaver Falls Art Tile Co. Many of Broome's tiles can be seen in museums such as the Smithsonian, Cincinnati Art Museum, etc. Isaac Broome became interested in ceramics at the end of the Civil War, when he went to museums in Europe. He returned and set up a terra-cotta business in Pittsburgh which was not favorably received. In 1871, he attempted to set up another company (STILL very early for the American ceramics industry) which didn't work out. In 1890, he left the Providential Company and joined Beaver Falls. Art Tile Company in Beaver Falls, PA--just outside Pittsburgh. An absolutely stunning high-relief portrait tile, worthy of being framed, featuring a boy in 18th Century costume: much the fashion in this "pre-Raphaelite" time when people were looking back to a simpler time: pre-Industrial Revolution. An example in another color may be seen in "The Encyclopedia of American Tiles Region 2" by Norman Karlson (page196, plate 044-021) See above for condition: a few minimal chips abrasions. An amazing addition to your collection or simply framed for your decor! I love tiles: Can display on stands; frame; install; use as a hotplate (don't recommend for this!); lean on a sill or shelf... I strive for win/win situations and want to deserve your 5 STAR rating please! Please do not "ding" me on shipping. I try to ship at minimum cost and maximum safety. If I am over, I will refund; if under to your benefit! Thanks SO MUCH for looking and PLEASE ask any questions!! Happy bidding!! Condition: Good condition. Some chips/abrasions: A few to lower wisps of beard; One at bottom edge of lace; and one on edge of fur collar. These spots could easily be touched up/restored with a bit of enamel. Very minimal crazing!
