FRANK VOSMANSKYHand Painted HorseRARECeramic Tile TrivetHot PlateVINTAGE. The painted horse is in excellent condition. There are some slight scratches on the silver rim & 1 side of the rim needs to be secured but it does not affect the use or display. I did not want to secure it in the event you wanted to remove the tile for an alternate display.
Please see photos for details. This beautiful hand-painted glazed ceramic trivet features a majestic brown horse, Vosmanskys name and a silver or chrome frame & feet. It is backed with the original dark brown felt.This ceramic tile was made by Crest Studios in Vermont. Crest Studios has been producing fine quality hand-painted glass and china for more than 70 years. This decorating studio is one of the few existing factories in America still implementing age-old painting and printing methods; each piece of glass and china is still decorated delicately by hand.
A glimpse back to the origin of Crest Studios shows the dedication to artistry and uniqueness of the product that still thrives today. During the Russian Revolution, a cavalry officer named Cyril Gorainoff who had an inherent talent to draw horses and wildlife fled to America. After meeting a Czechoslovakian technical ceramicist named Frank Vosmansky, they made the wise decision to combine their skills and opened a small gift shop on Madison Avenue in New York City in the 1920's. After much success in the 1930's, the prestigious Abercrombie and Fitch store entered into an exclusive contract with them to feature their sporting line of hunt scenes, dogs and birds. During the Eisenhower presidency, these adventurous, talented immigrants were commissioned to produce china for the White House.
