I was extremely excited to find this piece; it's gorgeous as well as being a part of turn-of-the century American industrial history. This solid marble tile was made by American Encaustic Tiling (AETCO), which was at one time known as the largest tile manufacturer in the world. They began operations in 1875 in New York, but succumbed to the Great Depression sixty years later, in 1935. AETCO was known for their gorgeous art deco tiles, and this solid marble number 7 tile is representative of that period. The tile is simple and beautiful, done in french blue and white.

I've done very little in the way of cleaning it, as I believe the slight grubbiness lends character. If you'd like to, I believe it would clean up well....but I'll leave that to you.

The reverse is stamped:
American Encaustic Tiling
manALHAMBRAmade
registered New York

Measures 4"x6"x½" and is lovely as-is, but would frame up very nicely. Don't let this one get away from you; you don't come across AET tiles very often. Insurance on this piece is mandatory and included in the quoted shipping price.
