Moravian Pottery & Tile Works Tiles?
Is there anyone out there with knowledge of Moravian Tile Works tiles? We just bought an early 1900s home with an arts & crafts feel, and I've confirmed that the fireplace is a Moravian Tile Works "narrative" fireplace. What I can't figure out is how old it is - it's a pattern (the 4 seasons) that is replicated by the company today but it's also one of their original designs, so I'm trying to figure out if it is possibly original to the house. But I have no idea how to date the tiles, or how to clean them, or put a value to them (if they have any). Anyone who has any ideas, I'd love to hear them!
