    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Centennial Three-Dimensional Effect Tile.
    5.5" x 8.75" (sight) ceramic tile with sepia glaze, custom framed to an overall size of 7.75" x 10.75". The portrait has slightly raised areas which, in conjunction with the glaze, give a three-dimensional effect. The back has a long inscription indicating it was produced for the 1909 Centennial by Sherwin & Cotton Eastwood Tile Works in Hanley, Staffordshire and marketed in the U.S. by Robinson & Randle of New York. These typically have crazing, but this example does not and is in great condition. Similar plaques were later produced for Woodrow Wilson, Theodore Roosevelt and Warren G. Harding. A great display piece.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
