IMPORTANT offerDING AND PAYMENT INFORMATION: IF YOU PLAN TO offer ON THIS ITEM AND ARE THE HIGH buyer I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THAT YOU DO NOT PAY ME UNTIL YOU RECEIVE MY INVOICE NOT THE INVOICE THAT IS GENERATED IMMEDIATELY AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE SALE BY . now has rules that all sellers MUST ship items for which they have been paid within one business day without exception. Those who follow my sales and have bought from me over the years know that I have always had a policy of shipping within 24 hours of a sale (see my response), however, there are times when I am out of town unexpectedly for a house call, an sale or an estate call and it simply is not possible to get to the post office in time. Also, if you find that there is more than one item you are interested in offerding on over a given time period and would like to take advantage of combined shipping, please again, DO NOT pay me until the last of those items you're watching has finished. I will then send you an invoice with an adjusted shipping fee which saves on postage.. I never charge a "handling fee". I would rather wait a few days on a payment and extend you the advantage of lower shipping fees than to be paid immediately - not ship - and then be scored negatively by for not shipping soon enough.Offered in this sale is a fabulous scenic hand painted tile that was made by the American Encaustic Tile Company in the late 1800s. I acquired it mounted in what I am sure is its original frame which you can see in the first image. The tile was very dirty and in order to clean it and determine who it was made by I needed to take out some of the original nails in the back to remove it from its mounting. The back of the tile which you can see illustrated in the 2nd image is marked with what I believe is the company's earlier mark before they became a LTD corporation. The tile itself measures 9" x 4" x 1/2" thick. In addition to the embossed company mark on the back there are some hand scribed numbers and what looks to be "mottled brown". The matt finished painting which is well executed in brown. Of note is the man on horseback with his dog in the distance to the right of the herd who has is painted with a definitively lighter shade of brown which I feel was designed to catch your eye and brings you there. This was certainly painted by a skilled artist. Unfortunately it is not signed. The condition of the tile is excellent. There are no chips, cracks, flakes, hairlines or restoration to the tile. In the first picture you can see that it was filthy when I first got it. I gently cleaned it to remove the surface dirt which you can see if you compare the 1st vrs 3rd pictures. There is an old paper label on the back of the backing that reads R.H. Macy & Co Herald Square which further helps to date this piece the late 19th possibly early 20th century. The frame is not in the best of condition with some missing wood which is why I decided to pull the tile out to determine the maker. The high buyer is welcome to have the tile and the frame or just the tile as you please. The R.H. Macey label I feel lends nice provenance to this piece. You would just need to have it properly "reframed" if you want to keep it all original. Please feel free to email with any questions. I always guarantee everything is being sold WITHOUT A RESERVE as long as there is an opening offer. High buyer to pay $8.00 shipping/ including insurance - inside the United States. The last three images illustrate other items I have listed for sale on sale on including an early Bohemian overlay cut glass beaker and a number of pieces of early Dresden porcelain.You are offerding on only the one piece in this sale.INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: All international packages under four pounds are mailed International First Class mail unless you specifically request Priority Mail which is, of course, more costly.
