This stately ram paperweight was manufactured by the American Encaustic Tiling Co. LTD New York. AETCO had a factory in Zanesville, Ohio where this piece was purchased. The ram is seated on a rectangular base finished in an iridescent olive glaze with an over wash of turquoise. The base measures 5.5 x 2.75 inches. The height is 3.75 inches. The unglazed bottom bears the impressed mark "American Encaustic Tiling Co. LTD New York". This piece is flawed. There is a chip on the edge behind the ram, it is darkened with age. There is a chipped corner (darkened with age) in front of the ram and a run / drip of some sort. Felt has been adhered on the bottom on each end, but not over the mark. There are names written in pencil on the exposed portion of the base. The price has been adjusted to reflect these flaws. The chips are not readily noticeable due to their darkened age. Please see the photos.
