“ The Kraftile Company, established in 1926 in Fremont,CA grew out of the Kraft Cheese Company box making division, which was called the K and L Box and Lumber Co. With the leftover wood scraps and the local excellent red clay supply, it was discovered that roof tile could be produced. The roof tiles were dropped when they realized that wall, floor, and decorated tile could be made.“ ...from “The Encyclopedia of American Art Tiles” Norman Karlson

Trent Tile Company, Trenton, NJ 1982-1939. An early prolific pottery that made outstanding, dust-pressed, highly glazed tiles for most of its productive, fifty-eight years in business. This is a perfect 'puti' ( angel baby) for February!
