Rare Vintage Franklin Tile Company Airplane
From the Franklin Tile Company of Lansdale PA is a rare tile of a biplane flying through the clouds, self framed within a black border. This image can be found in their 1930's catalog as "243 Airplane" in their offerings of 6" x 6" inserts. It is made from a faience clay and measures nearly 6" square and 1/2" thick. In all my years of collecting I have never seen another example of this design. It remains in excellent original condition.
