C. 1925 Original Tunisian ceramic tile by Les Fils de J. Chemla. Custom designed & made for the renowned ''Casa del Herrero/House of the Blacksmith'' in Montecito, California. This home (now a museum) is a fine example of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture. Displays a polychrome glaze with vibrant (outlined) foliate design. Underside impressed with “Made In Tunisia” & ''EMLA TUNIS'', ''DE IN TUNISIA" (sideways partial stamp). Meant to replicate older period North African tiles. In great condition with some wear & "chipping" to corners & edges. Three (expected) stilt - or pock - marks to the top surface are visible - made during kiln firing. Very scarce to find.

Dimensions; 6" x 6" x 0.5"

More info: Includes the book "Casa Del Herrero: The Romance of Spanish Colonial" by Rizzoli. It contains fascinating info about the sourcing & history of the tiles manufactured for the house. Page 30-Displays a preliminary sketch & photograph of this specific tile.
