Lot No. 0414
Rather amazing Claycraft tile tableau consisting of 88 tiles which depict a large galleon at full sail in rough seas as seen through a window, possibly the arched window in the Captain’s lodgings of another sailing vessel. Two tiny crewmen are visible on deck. The tiles are in a gloss finish and measure 32 1/4 by 44 1/2 inches. Condition is excellent with no crazing. One tile, in the upper left hand corner, has a small chip next to its grout line and some of the grout may need to be redone. There are 15 distinct colors used in the tiles. This set of tiles was recently removed from the bathroom of a home here in Cincinnati. They were carefully and professionally removed but do contain about 1 and 1/2 inches of cement on the back. This makes them heavy (about 250 pounds) but also stabilizes the removal process and protects the tiles in shipment.
