Mosaic Tile Company Rare Halloween Bat, Kindergarten Series

$ 350.00
A rare and vintage Arts and Crafts Mission tile in matte glazes from the Mosaic Tile Company dating to the 1930's. Measures 4 1/4" square and 5/8" thick.  From the Kindergarten Series it shows a self framed image of a bat flying in a star lit sky.. Made from a red faience clay, which makes the glaze colors more rich in tone. The tile was reclaimed and has bits of mortar and a little saw mark.

This is the only bat tile from the Kindergarten Series that I've ever seen. They were made with the intention of being used in schools and libraries. B is for bat, etc. Examples of this series are shown in a period catalog and others were photographed for volume 2 of the four volume set of the Encyclopedia of American art Tile by Norman Karlson.
