J. & J.G. Low Art Tile Scenic Frieze Figures With Kindling & Horse
Exceptional large ceramic tile frieze landscape by the J. J.G. Low Art Tile Co. Complete with 6 tiles each measuring 6" wide by 12" long by about 3/4" thick. This makes a 12" x 36" panel. The carved relief scene is of a child in the front with a lantern, a man carrying a bundle of sticks, a man walking a horse with two women in the last tile. Looks like they are walking towards a village that can be seen in the background. The tiles are a high gloss majolica with a green glaze. In excellent antique condition with no cracks, damage or wear. There are a few tiny chips in the corners from handling but very minimal and will not show once framed. Traces of adhesive on the backs. This was probably mounted in an elaborate fireplace mantle.
Each tile has an impressed signature on the back. Designed and Made for the Conway Cabinet Co. by the Low Art Tile Co. Chelsea, Mass. Copyright 1894.
