very rare LARGE deep PURPLE STAR


IF you follow glass prism tiles at all, you know an oversized 5 x 5 " tile isn't standard fare
you just don't see them available very often.



the color of this tile is nothing short of incredible- i have to be honest.
the saturation is so intense that it practically vibrates.



imagine what this color would look like in your hand - if you're someone who has an appreciation for color .
and if you are a purple lover like i am- you should absolutely own this tile.

the design suggests something oriental and something magic to me- certainly something geometric .
reminds me of an oriental seal or chop. a thing that would have been used as a signature stamp in correspondence way back when.
the geometry and razzle dazzle of light play pings and bounces like no other i have ever seen.


THERE ARE TWO SIZES OF THIS TILE , this is the larger of the two - BOTH ARE DISTINCTLY UNCOMMON
PRISM TILES WERE USED IN COMMERCIAL TRANSOMS PRE ELECTRICITY TO USHER THE PRIZED DAYLIGHT INSIDE.
THE SAWTOOTH BACK OF THE TILE IS WHERE the ingenious science lies.

*A renowned stained glass RESTORATION EXPERT / HISTORIAN in new york city determined upon examination that the purple color was NOT from solarization at all. this tile was ACTUALLY manufactured purple
!THIS TILE HAS A BEAUTIFUL VELVETY PURPLE - EDGE TO EDGE / THROUGH AND THROUGH
he explained ...TILES that solarize will consistently have a lighter shade on their outer rim because the glass is tucked and sealed into metal camework then puttied into place. think tan lines .


THAT piece of information places THIS tile in an extraordinary category! !
