Villeroy and Boch

German Art Nouveau Tile Jugendstil Mermaid and Anchor

$ 225.00
This original German Jugenstil tile was made by Villeroy and Boch between 1900-1910.  Measures 6" square. It shows a mermaid, her tail curling around an anchor, ready to seduce a sailor. It is rendered in super high relief and covered in a beautiful aubergine glaze. The back is unmarked. It remains in excellent condition with only a couple of small rubs. A rare example.

A mermaid parade is held annually in Coney Island NYC in June to celebrate the beginning of the Summer season. It is said to be the largest parade in the United States.
