Tile of an Elk by Hamilton

$ 125.00
Made in the late 19th Century in Ohio this antique tile by Hamilton was made in the emaux obrants, or photographic style. The 4 1/4" clay square was impressed with an image and a single color glaze was applied. The glaze would pool in the recesses and thin over the highest points, giving the tile a look similar to a realistic photograph. It is made from a white dust pressed clay and is signed "HAMILTON OHIO" on the back. The surface remains shiny with nearly no wear. There are a few small flakes on the perimeter.
