T2038

U.S.Tile & Marble Company This is an advertising piece made for U.S. Tile & Marble Company. They were located in Washington, D.C. The dates on the side are 1921 and 1939. Done in a mottled pink and white - this appears to be made of marble. Measures 5" long by 3 3/8" across by 3/4" high. The bottom only marked Made in USA, this looks very much like other pieces made by the Trenton Porcelain Company. Chip just above the 1939 date - hard to see as the material is the same color all the way through.. A great piece for anyone who collects tiles or collects Washington D.C. history items. (#T-2038)

Click for more detail...

BxPershingBox

General Pershing Tile in Original Box from Mosaic This Medallion of General John J. Pershing was made by the Mosaic Tile Company, Zanesville, OH, circa 1940. What's so amazing about this particular piece is that this comes in its original paper / cardboard box – which I have never seen before! The box says the name of the ceramic medallion, as well as "Distributed Through The American Legion Price $1.50". The top edge of the box is pretty well gone on both the top and bottom pieces. But that a box still exists is pretty amazing. The tile was made for the American Legion Zanesville Post Number 29, as part of their Home Building Fund. Measuring 5 ¼" x 3 5/8", Pershing is molded in high relief, in white on a Wedgwood blue color background. This is in excellent condition (#BxPershingBox)

Click here to enlarge image and see more about item 1126: Antique Advertising Pottery Pen Holder for Tile Company

Click for more detail...

1126

Antique Advertising Pottery Pen Holder for Tile Company This great advertising piece for Sajan & Company looks like it's a pen or pencil holder, but certainly doubles as a paperweight. The top says "Suppliers to Govt P.W.D. and Native States", then under Sajan & Co, "Fort No 1 Bombay Merchants & Contractors". The sides say "English Floor Wall Tiles Mosaic Tiles All Building Materials AT Moderate Rates".

Made on a dust pressed blank, this hexagonal ceramic piece measures 4 1/2" from point to point, and just under 4" to the flat sides. A fabulous green majolica glaze covers the words, done in intaglio technique. I believe Sajan & Company was located in India - and this piece certainly has the feel of something from circa 1900, but that's just an educated guess. There are some small glaze nips to the outside edges, and only the most minor of wear on the face. Generally in very nice condition- what an unusual piece for a tile or pottery collection, and an example of historical memorabilia. (#T1126)
