Item specifics

Original/Reproduction: ORIGINAL  


Today I have available to offer for considerations:

This wonderful old antique architectural ornament majolica art pottery tile

manufactured by Trent Tile, Trenton, N.J., U.S.A.

Measuring a smidgit under 4 1/2" x 4.25" inches & weighs almost 10oz.

Have been used - still has some plaster around the edges, crazing to the glaze

some nic's and light chips on it and hasn't been touched nor cleaned

I believe these tiles were in circulation and being manufactured approximately

between the 1870's to early 1900's era during the height of the aesthetic

movement - these majolica relief tiles were made from dust-pressed white clay.

If you're a collector and love redesigning or renovating these type of tiles

Be sure to please take a look at each tile I have listed

In the event you may see more than one you like I can combine shipping for you

Tile Company History Trent Tile Company 1882-1939 Located in Trenton, NJ, this company started in 1882 as the Harris Manufacturing Company. By 1883 the name was changed to Trent Tile Company. In 1883, Quebec born Isaac Broome, a designer and modeler, came to Trent to work. He was highly qualified, boasting 8 years of experience at the Ott and Brewer Pottery. He left the company in 1886, but Trent was able to keep producing new Broome designs after he left, because of the amount he designed while he was there. After Broome left, a man named William Wood Gallimore, an artist and modeler, took his place. In 1912, the factory had financial troubles, and was bought by Thomas H. Thropp in 1916. Under his ownership, Trent produced 8 million square feet of tile each year. When Thropp died in 1931, his son, H.W. Thropp took over. R.P Herrold purchased Trent in 1936 with a loan from the government. In 1939, the factory was once again in trouble, and it closed down. In 1940, it was bought by Wenczel Tile Company. Tiles from Trent “were used on fireplaces, mantels, counter fronts, wainscoting, soda fountains, doorways, and as independent art panels.”(Karlson) Trent tiles were available in 118 colors, and countless designs.
