1950''s Chinese Modern Tile Panel with Paper Lanterns. Tiki Magic!
In the 1950''s Chinese Modern was all the rage. Remember in I love Lucy when Lucy bought a houseful of Chinese Modern furniture? Or when they went to California and there was that big sweeping bough of cherry blossoms on the wall? This vintage tile panel is hand painted on cream and beige speckled tile. Colorful silver capped paper lanterns swing on sparkling silver strings under a bough of bamboo leaves. Very 50''s. Very tiki. Very cool. There are 24 tiles, each 4.25 inches square. The tile blanks were made by Dal Monte of Monterrey Mexico. The overall size of the panel is 25.75 by 17.25 inches. If installed, grout lines would make this a little larger, or it can just be glued on board and framed. Never installed, the tiles are in pristine condition.
