Aries the Ram Zodiac Tile by Mueller Mosaic

$ 625.00
This antique tile was made at the Mueller Mosaic Tile Company of Trenton NJ at the beginning of the 20th Century. It is from their zodiac series and features the astrological sign of Aries the Ram (March 20-april 19). Molded in high relief with hand carved details, the ram stands high within the roundel and is self framed. Made from a brick red faience clay and glazed in a speckled deep blue. The back has an incised wedge with a hole that extends through the top edge so that a wire or ribbon can be inserted to hang it on the wall. It measures 7 1/2" square and nearly an inch thick. From my personal collection this tile was photographed for the Encyclopedia of American Art Tile by Norman Karlson and can be found in Vol 1 page 162.

The condition is nearly perfect, with only a flake on the bottom left corner in the fired red clay. Great to hang on a wall, get framed, or use as an accent in a mission style environment.
