Art Deco Tile Couple with Gazelles in a Jungle Landscape
This vintage octagonal tile has a romanticized scene of a man dressed as a sheik standing behind a woman wearing a ball gown while petting some gazelles. They're standing in an exotic garden of palm trees and jungle foliage. It measures 5" square and 3/4" thick. The sides are glazed with the edges of four sides decorated with a reeded design. It's a pretty Art Deco era design in a color that is popular in today's decorating. The back is a striated design to keep the tile in place. Unmarked, this is possibly from England. It remains in excellent condition.
It's a nice piece to decorate a holiday table, weigh down some papers or display on a shelf.
