Pair of 19th C. Minton or Trent Ceramic Portrait Tiles of Athena & Zeus
This pair of tiles was probably made by Minton, an English producer of fine quality ceramic ware. They excelled in monotone portrait tiles. The detailing on these tiles is exquisite and the delicate shading of the single color of glaze rendered in a painterly manner due to the portrait in relief is amazing in it's depth and volume. Each tile is framed in a mahogany frame with a metal loop hanger. The frames are completely enclosed with wood on the back and so I have not seen whether these tiles are marked or not. The frame sizes are both slightly different. The Athena tile is framed in a 6 3/8 inch square frame and the Zeus tile is slightly larger in a 6 1/2 inch square frame.
