American Encaustic AETCO Nursery Rhyme Tile Little Bo Peep

$ 225.00
A hand painted at the factory nursery rhyme tile made by the American Encaustic Tile Company, AETCO, of Zanesville Ohio. It shows a story book styled Little Bo Peep with the nursery rhyme written on the lower corner. Measures 6" square. This tile shows virtually no wear. For some reason these tiles always seem to have condition issues, but this one has much less than usual. Signed AETCO on the back.

Similar tiles from this series were used in the children's nursery bath in the mansion built by Marjorie Merriweather Post called Mar a Lago in 1924. A set of these tiles encircled the area just above the tub, enabling the child to be taught their nursery rhymes while being bathed.
