The American Encaustic Tile Co., also referred to as AE or AETCO Tile Co., founded in 1875, and grew to be one of the preeminent makers of art tile in the early 20th century. The craftsmanship and design that went into the production of Encaustic Co. tiles helped to convince Americans of the merit of tiled bathrooms and kitchens. This paired mosaic set features a Minstrel in antiquated garb serenading a lady with a downcast gaze. Both sets have been finished with a caramel toned glaze.
