About this collection

aet

The American Encaustic Tiling Company was established in Zanesville, Ohio in 1875. By the 1930s, the company was one of the largest tile manufacturers in the world. The company manufactured art tile, plain and ornamental wall tile, and floor tile.

The Ceramic Mosaic Tile catalog was published in the early twentieth century to showcase and promote American Encaustic Tiling Company floor tile. Seventy-one color plates depict available patterns, sizing, colors, lettering and numbers for myriad styles of floor tile design.
