American Encaustic Tile Company Fireplace Panel Cherubs in a Tree Hunting Birds
A three tile panel by the American Encaustic Tile Company of Zanesville Ohio dating to the late 1800's. Each tile measures 6 inches square making this scene 18 inches long. It shows a pair of cherubs balancing on a tree branch. One aims his bow and arrow at a bird, who in turn ducks his head under his wing in anticipation. Originally these were used as decoration above a fireplace or in a vestibule entering a home. Now these antique tiles can be framed and used as a piece of durable art or installed once again. You're only limited to your imagination The tiles are in remarkably good condition with only a rub on the arm and shoulder of the larger cherub. The backs are unsigned.
