SOLD - Enigma Variations Collection: Framed Antique USA Tin Ceiling Tile (151)
SOLD - Enigma Variations Collection: Framed Antique USA Tin Ceiling Tile 151
Tin ceiling tiles were introduced to USA in 1800s as an affordable way to mimmic the ornate plaster ceilings found in European houses. These architectural elements became very popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The tin plate was pressed over a decorative mould to create a patterned metal in relief. The metal was then painted to evoke plasterwork.
Now highly covetable, the antique tiles are salvaged and mounted as individual pieces of architectural history with a strong aesthetic and visual appeal.
This tile is in a lovely old condition with an attractive patina naturally created through age. The tile has been wrapped over a timber frame. For a flush fit just hang the wooden frame on a picture pin.
Dimensions: 60cm x 60cm
