For Sale is a very nice Art Glass Tile made by Tiffany Studios, New York. This is the 3rd tile of a Tile Collection I bought. The Tile is a nice petite size as it measures 2 15/16" Square. This would be considered a 3" Square Tile.
This Art Glass Tile displays an Arts and Crafts Four Leaf Clover raised design in the center. The Symbol of Good Luck. The Glass in this Tile is simply outstanding. The Mottling is Superb!! The Tile shows Red, Orange and Green coloring throughout. There is a Green/Yellow Geometric thin layer of color surrounding the exterior border. There is also a grain in the glass. It is a real gently raised swirl texture as pictured.
The Glass is considered to be in very good condition as there are no cracks or any major chips. There is the usually tiny Flea Nicks along the exterior edge. There are a half dozen of these. These are on the left hand side at the top and the bottom. These are about the size of a pencil tip. My camera is 10X Power Zoom and make it looks worse than it really is. The tile is unsigned as is the case with these style tiles. It does display a raised geometric grid. This is as good as a Signature and unique to LC Tiffany Favrile method of making them. The tile has a slight curve to it and presume they went around a surface that had a curve or was rounded .
These tiles were used around Fireplaces and other Mosaic Type applications. This grid work on the back helped hold it to the grout and hold it in place when mounted. Taking these tiles out usually caused damage to the tile. This one is in surprising great shape and more than likely was removed with some ease. Tiffany Favrile Tiles in this Decor and Mottling are very hard to find. Tiles were some of the earliest glass items made by Tiffany Studios as he used them in his Decorating Business early on. These were made in his Corona, Long Island Factory. I am quite sure the Buyer will be extremely pleased with their Purchase!!
This tile was made circa 1892-1900.
