Gladding McBean Art Deco Tile
This colorful Art Deco tile was made at the Gladding McBean Tile Company of California. Measuring 6" square and 1/2" thick the design is rendered in the cuerda seca, or dry line, process, where the glazes are separated by a thin black line hand drawn onto the tile. It has a nice glossy finish and was never installed, but does have a corner chip, which would be hidden if framed. The back is embossed "Gladding McBean"
