Patient Quest for Grueby Tiles By Dave Smith, longtime THF member

In 1983, I traveled to St Louis to meet my future in-laws. I had always enjoyed antiquing and had recently gotten the bug to collect American art pottery. In one antique store on Cherokee Street, I was handling some antique tiles when the owner suggested that I look in the basement. Walking down, we found hundreds of new old stock tiles from circa 1900, Grueby, AETCO and Trent. The store owner said that they were rescued from the basement of an old hotel with the wrecking ball literally ready to do its work. There had been picture tiles but he had sold those. Over a period of a few years, I bought all the tiles as I could afford them, paying $5-6 per square foot of tile.  . . . . .
