moreOriginal and completely intact 19th century pictorial glazed ceramic fireplace tile turned into a Trivet, designed by famed artist William Wise. (The Wise signature is hidden by the edge of the trivet corner)
Scenic transfer-ware tile was fabricated by the Minton China Works, Stoke on Trent, England. The sepia-toned antique Minton tile contains super-fine allover crazing. The tile was salvaged from a second floor bedroom located within the David C. Cook mansion. The tile measures 6 x 6 inches. The tile is part of the "Animals on the Farm" series. David C. Cook, founder of a prominent religious publishing operation, built the high victorian queen anne chateauesque style mansion on the corner of gifford and division streets in 1885.
In 1945 the grand residence was converted (i.e., modernized and expanded) into the Mary Margaret Nursing Home and later renamed the Bowes Retirement Center. Fortunately, interior elegant furnishings located on both the first and second floors were left intact from the time of Mr. Cook's occupancy.
Minton's ltd, was a major ceramics manufacturing company, originated with Thomas Minton, the founder of "Thomas Minton and Sons", who established his pottery factory in Stoke-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, England, in 1793, producing earthenware. less
