Vintage Dec-Art Tile Herons in a Night Landscape California Art Deco

$ 95.00
Decorative Arts Inc (1927-1933) or DecArt produced this decidedly Art Deco image of two herons, under a crescent moon, wading among waterlilies, cattails and a palm tree. Nice imagery that would appeal to a Florida home. I love the chartreuse and yellow accents against the black silhouette. Only in business for 6 years in Hawthorne California this company didn't manufacture their own tiles, they purchased blanks and applied their own decorative surface. Measures 8" square. Some roughness and flakes around the edges have been colored in. This tile was at one time installed, I was told in a movie theater in PA, and has remnants of cement on the back. Some of the black transfer has developed a gray blush from age

A similar tile is shown in the book California Tile, The Golden Era 1910-1940, Vol 1 page 185.
