Antique Ceramic House Number Tile - 8
Antique or vintage ceramic house number tile, featuring the number 8 as a bow festooned with violets. I'm not sure who it's by but it does have a registered design number, 563592, but I've been unable to trace the manufacturer. The design was registered in 1910. It has some crazing, one corner is chipped and there appears to be a well established hairline crack from one side to the middle of the 8 but it looks sound enough. Set in place it will be fine though and a steam clean will remove the worst of the ingrained grime. To be honest, I'm pretty certain it is unused, just old!
