Description: Panoramic watercolor rendering of the exterior of a pottery factory. Based on the intertwined "MTC" design seen on the large building at left, it has been identified as the Mosaic Tile Company factory that was located in Zanesville, Ohio. The artist, whose signature is seen on the lower right, is tentatively identified as Andrew Loomis (1892-1959), an American illustrator who grew up in Zanesville. His father, Newell E. Loomis, appears to have been employed by the Mosaic Tile Company, and served as secretary beginning in 1917 and general manager beginning in 1923. The Mosaic Tile Company was incorporated in Zanesville in1894, and variously produced floor tiles of different types, wall and trim tile, artistic tile murals and faience tile. The company operated until 1967. View on Ohio Memory.
