"Capricorn," Important Art Deco Tile with Zodiac Theme by MacLeary

$1,150

About

Created by Bonnie MacLeary, a Texas-born sculptor famed for her "Aspiration" and "Ouch" bronzes, two of several created in the 1920s, this classic Art Deco tile dates from the 1940s, after MacLeary moved to New York and concentrated on ceramic work. Finished with gorgeous purple and ivory glazes highlighted with gold, this tile depicts a somersaulting goat -- full of high energy and whimsy. The tile retains its original label and frame.
