American Majolica Portrait Tile Brooklyn I.T.T.
Brooklyn's International Tile & Trim was in business from 1882-1888. Its tiles are comparatively rare. This tile is carved in fine relief and depicts the theme of harvest, symbolic or Autumn. In a classical setting, a man scything wheat bending in the breeze watches as the young man at his side playfully withholds an apple from the maiden next to him. The tile is finished in a fabulous dark amber, glossy majolica glaze. It is in excellent condition with light glaze rubs to the nose of the man with the scythe, the left hand of the standing man and the wrist of the woman. Please write with any questions you may have.
