Two fantastic wall art plaques by Mid Century modern ceramic artist Harris G. Strong. The tiles are of a figural pair, native in nature with incredibly colorful glazes representing their attire. The ceramic tiles almost look like mosaic at first glance. Gorgeous greens and teals and blues and reds in the mix. Mounted on wooden plaques, walnut I believe.
The figures are 34" tall, the plaques are 41" x 9.5". A paper tag is still attached to one and they are numbered w-10 and w-11. Bronx, NY identifies that these came from his business that he founded in 1950. Also noteworthy and what makes these even more rare and collectible is that he stopped producing these tiles in 1970 after a fire destroyed all of his glazes that he had created over the years. Ensuring that these will only go up in value over the years.
Condition is excellent vintage. No chips have been found. I do note a small miss in the glaze (occurring during production) on the males foot, and only mentioned for accuracy, as it blends in and is not noticeable at normal viewing. It would be hard to find these in any better condition than this pair here.
These fabulous pieces are perfect for the collector of mid-century and modern art, or for the wise investor. A treasure for your collection.
