This framed set of Wheatley tiles measures 8.5" high by 17.5" long, with each tile measuring 4" square. Wheatley Tile produced art pottery and tiles from 1880-1932 in Cincinnati, OH. These tiles, which were probably made circa 1910, are decorated Horoscope tiles, specifically, Pisces, Taurus and Sagittarius. We imagine they produced the whole line of horoscope tiles. The tiles are glazed in wonderfully earthy and organic glaze colors. They are marked with number codes on the backsides, guaranteed to be vintage Wheatley tiles, and well documented in Karlson's book series 'Encyclopedia of American Art Tiles'. They are in essentially factory mint condition, with the usual glaze nuances that accompany Wheatley glaze lines of the period. They make a very handsome presentation, in a nice old vintage oak frame!
