Calco Colonnade Relief Tile 1920s CA452

Pretty wonderful relief tile of an ultra-romantic Spanish (or Ancient Roman) colonnade, or perhaps even an aqueduct,  set in the grounds of a charming and picturesquely crumbling hacienda (or villa).

Calco is another jewel in the crown of California Pottery: from 1923 to 1932, under its founder Rufus Keeler, Calco made its reputation from its innovative glazes and its command of a wide range of decorative styles from a myriad of cultures, from Mayan to Saracen, Moorish, Persian and Egyptian to even Chinese. Tile design was the mainstay of the company, but happily they also produced objects, such as figurines, bookends and the like, of great charm and originality.
