This tile and all Pewabic tiles shipped from Pure Detroit come with an embossed Pewabic gift box complete with a collector's card of historical information about this Detroit institution.
Pewabic Pottery was founded in 1903 by Mary Chase Perry (later Mary Chase Perry Stratton) and her partner Horace Caulkins (developer of Revelation Kiln) at the height of the Arts & Crafts movement in America.
Under the direction of Mary Chase Perry Stratton, Pewabic Pottery produced nationally renowned vessels, tiles, and architectural ornamentation for public and private installations.
Works fabricated by Pewabic Pottery can be seen throughout the United States in such places as the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., the Nebraska State Capitol, the Science Building at Rice University in Houston, and the Herald Square installation commissioned by the New York Metro Transit Authority. Stratton is a member of the Michigan's Women Hall of Fame.
