Karlsruhe Cattleya Orchid Tile
From Karlsruhe's botanical series this tile depicts orchids. It measures 12" tall and 9" wide, the design showing off the thick crackled glass glaze. It has incised holes on the top edge and wire to facilitate hanging. There were meant to be hung on the walls of a home or garden and used like a ceramic painting. They could still be used in an installation too!. The back has an impressed Karlsruhe mark and the code 7514 designed by Werner Meschede (1925-81) and in production between 1969-74. It remains in perfect condition.
