FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION

AN AUCTION FOR

A TILE FRAMED PICTURE

OF A GALLEON SPANISH SHIP

FOUR POTTERY TILES

FRAMED IN A BIRD'S EYE MAPLE FRAME

THIS TILE SET CAME FROM AN ELDERLY GENTLEMAN WHO DONATED

THE CONTENTS OF HIS ESTATE TO HIS CHURCH

I HAVE BEEN AUCTIONING THESE ITEMS FROM TIME TO TIME

PROCEEDS ARE BEING USED FOR REPAIR OF THE CHURCH TOWER

UNFORTUNATELY I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT TILES BUT THEY APPEAR OLD AND ARE BEAUTIFULLY FRAMED

THEY ARE HAND PAINTED AND HAVE BEEN PUT INTO A FINE FRAME

I AM SURE IT IS BIRD'S EYE MAPLE BECAUSE OF THE DISTINCT PATTERN ON THE BACK (SHOWN IN PHOTO)

THE TILES WERE VALUED TO HAVE BEEN PUT IN SUCH A NICELY CRAFTED FRAME

T ARE NO IDENTIFYING MARKS ON THE FRONT OF THE TILES WHATSEOVER

THE COLORS ARE VIBRANT - THE UPPER LEFT TILE HAS A COUPLE OF AREAS W THE GLAZE DID NOT COVER

5 1/2" TILES IN A FRAME THAT MEASURES 15" X 15"

BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE CONDITION

PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE IN ADVANCE OF AUCTION BIDDING

THANK YOU
