What a statement these make on the wall! Beautiful raised relief makes these one color tiles pop with different hues! The glaze color varies from light to dark depending of the degree of relief. The putti on each tile appear to be servants, one is carrying a soup tureen and the other has a tray with pitcher and plates. The tiles have some wear on the raised areas and have had some touch up paint over the damage. As you can see from the picture where they are hanging on the wall they are magnificent.
Isaac Broome (1836-1922) was an American sculptor, ceramic modeler and teacher. He was one of the premier pottery and tile designers and innovators of the last quarter of the 19th century and the early 20th century. This tile was made from a mold in the 1880's designed by an artist named Isaac Broome who was co-owner of the Trent Tile Co in Trenton NJ. The mold for the tile of the boy holding the tureen has been on display at the Trenton City Museum in NJ.
