This ceramic tile was produced in the United States in the 1880s or 1890s. It is unmarked but it may have been produced at the Trent Tile Company of Trenton, New Jersey. It measures 18 inches long and is 6 1/2 inches wide. The tile is decorated in high relief with a classic Greek maiden. It is light green in color with a high gloss glaze. The figural rendering is fine, exemplifying expert artistic ability. Tiles of this size are uncommon and the subject matter is quite desirable. It is ready to hang in an ornate gilded frame.
Condition: Over all, this tile is in very good condition. There is all-over crazing of the glaze, common to this type of ceramic. There are a couple of areas with slight wear to the glaze, very minor but mentioned for accuracy. There is one glaze pop on the lower right edge that occurred in the kiln.
