American Arts and Crafts Tile of a Snake or Serpent

$ 185.00
A charming one of a kind hand made tile depicts a snake or serpent with a wide gaping toothy grin. The image is deeply carved, the brick red background and one side is stippled with a stiff brush. There are two manufactured holes for mounting. Measures 6 1/8" square and 3/4" thick. Excellent original condition.

I purchased a few of these animal related tiles years ago in Florida. Certainly part of a larger mural, with the stippled sides as a finished edge. I can imagine that these were part of the signage in one of those roadside tourist attractions which proliferated in the early part of the 20th Century, now long gone to history.
