Rare five piece tile scene made by claycraft tile co. It's very rare for a scene like this to surface this is the first time we have ever seen this.Now ready cleaned and available for sale. These tiles came out of an old Spanish style home from the early 1900s these tiles were in the wall out in the courtyard. Fortunately the client is redoing the entire design of his home and no longer have need for such a beautiful tiles as this. I have only seen one of these tile surface and it is the tile on the far left.
The other four I have never seen. The subject matter is simply amazing The houses on the tiles almost look like castles but after looking closer they look as though they are old missions with the tile roof. The center tile has a small garden area at the bottom with what appears to be an additional castle. I try to include all details and photos.
Tiles are in overall good condition I didn't notice one or two small nicks on the corners/edges but nothing major I did not notice any breaks or repairs. There is some slight roughness to the surface of the tiles but overall they are absolutely amazing so much better in person. Craycraft the company had a tendency to go back after the tiles were set and touch up with chalk that was a surface added color all of the other colors were baked in with the glaze. I'm not sure if that's what they had done here but it looks possible a very light blue was added to the sky of the center tiles but I'm not sure I cannot tell I don't know enough about the tiles but it looks as though nothing is coming off that it baked. Either way this is very rare for this to surface and absolutely amazing how these tiles are truly capture an era.28"x8" total w/o grout lines.
