Zsolnay Art Tile Collection

Circa 1878-1915

The Marriage of Ceramics to Architecture & Furniture

Tile # 33. This is the largest Zsolnay pictorial tile we have ever seen, 25¾" X 19¾" and believe it to be the only one in existence. Although there is one sizable corner over painted and a 14" crack, this piece remains a unique museum example. Circa 1900-1914 showing a late use of the Japanesque Aesthetic with Ringtail pheasants and dogwood possibly designed by artist Lajos Mack who specialized in exotic birds among other things. New chalked and blackened oak Secession style frame now holds this tile. Note: The dark repair line was greatly overpainted and that overpainting has been removed to reveal a very thin and much less noticeable glaze crack; also the contemporary wire frame has been removed. The signature scratched of Ronai on the back of the tile was discovered when the wire was removed. {hlnnn}Price on Request.
