This is an 8" x 8" glazed ceramic tile titled 'Les Fléchettes' designed by Salvador Dali. In the 1950's the Valencian tile manufacturer, ADEX, was commissioned by Maurice Dupin to produce a series of these six ceramic tiles made from designs by Salvador Dali based on his original paintings. Duchin, a businessman, had bought these paintings in New York in 1950. It was planned that the tiles would be sold to art collectors and also used as ornaments for small tables. Subsequently a 2nd earthenware issue of these tiles was produced in Spain. I believe that this tile is from the 2nd issue of these tiles.
Condition is overall good. I note one very small flake through the glaze near one corner, though this might have occurred when it was made.
What better way to own a piece of art from the mid 20th century icon Salvador Dali.
