Favorite Item of the Week: California Art Tile

This week, our favorite new item in the shop is this medieval themed Cal Art Tile.  It features knights and castles and jousting!

Cal Art Tile was made in Richmond, California (just down the street from us) from 1923 until 1956.  We removed this mantel from a home here in Berkeley.  You can see the original schematic for the mantel below.

Here's what it looked like when we removed it!
