A very pretty Antique (circa late 1800s) Art Pottery Tile. The tile depicts a loving couple and has the original oak frame. It is worked in a Sgraffito design, the term means to "scratched in" which when filled with glaze produces a dimensional design. This fine example is a large tile at 6" x 12", with the frame it is 8 7/8" x 14 3/4" overall. It is not marked but could be English. The Tile is in good overall condition. It does have the typical crazing which is common to this technique, it is less noticeable in person than the photos show. The tile has a chip on one corner and some small nicks to the edges which are under the frame. I will add a new back before I ship it, I left it so you could see the back of the tile. The Tile would be perfect in any antique decor, it is a lovely antique item.
