Antique French Art Nouveau Tile
Fantastic glazes define this highly relief-molded tile by the French maker, Utzschneider which was located in Sarreguemines (which used to be known as Saargemund), France, c. 1896-1910. French art nouveau tiles are rarely seen on the market. Here is a wonderfully articulated sea shell in very high relief framed by green underwater plants. I have two of these tiles and have pictured them together along with tiles from listing "FBAN 1050". The are both in excellent condition with some wear as shown. Particularly, tile #1 has a slight glaze rub at the highest point of the tile at about the shell's center; tile #2 also has a a slight glaze rub at the highest point of the tile at about the shell's center along with a tiny nicks to the upper edge of the tile toward right. Truly standout glaze work is exhibited on these examples. Price is for one tile. Please write with any questions you may have.
