Stove tiles

  • 1760-1800
  • Attributed to the Bethabara or Salem potteries. These press-molded tiles are coated with a white engobe and decorated with purple-brown and green slip in a pattern probably intended to resemble marble. The molds for these tiles are in the collection of Old Salem Museums & Gardens. For more on press-molded tiles and complete stoves, see John Bivins, Jr., The Moravian Potters in North Carolina (University of North Carolina Press for Old Salem, Inc., 1972), pp. 175-88.
