American Encaustic AETCO Nursery Rhyme Tile Little Bo Peep

$ 175.00
A hand painted at the factory nursery rhyme time made by the American Encaustic Tile Company AETCO of Zanesville Ohio. It shows an art deco styled Little Bo Peep with the nursery rhyme on the lower corner. It exhibits minimal wear and some small flakes around the edges. For some reason these tiles always seem to have condition issues, but this one has less than usual.

These tiles were used in the children's nursery bath in the mansion built by Marjorie Merriweather Post called Mar a Lago in 1924. A set of these tiles encircled the area just above the tub, enabling the child to be taught their nursery rhymes while being bathed.
