This Providential Tile Works 'Gladiator' tile measures 4.25" square. The Providential Tile works started in business in 1885 and operated until the late 1913 in Trenton, NJ. This tile is decorated in high relief with a strong portrait of a Gladiator or soldier. It is glazed in a deep rich green glaze, thinning at the high points, accentuating the design very handsomely, and finished to a high gloss. It is well marked on the backside. This tile is in fine condition, with minor edge nicks from use over the years, but none are distracting to its presentation as can be seen in the photos. This tile is over 100 years old, so it's actually in wonderful condition for it's age. If you collect American art tiles, this Providential Tile Works tile is a wonderful example of classic American Art Tile from the early 1900s, and it's very clean and very handsome!
