Item:292006540494Extravagant and large important museum quality tile mural from the classic Spanish Revival period of the 1920s - 1930s. The scene is a display of male and female Mexican/Spanish folklorique (folklorico) dancers in native costume. Glaze is very thick and hand painting very substantial. The mural is signed in the lower right.This comes from an important estate in Pacific Palisades, California, north of Sunset Boulevard on famed Amalfi Drive. The house was a showcase for Spanish Revival architecture of the 1920s, and was sadly razed, but the individual decorative elements were saved, which included paintings, wrought iron, other tile murals by D & M, fireplaces, urns, glass, etc. This piece was definitely the "jewel in the crown". It is very heavy and measures 104.5 inches wide and 37.25 inches high. It is in excellent condition, with only very issues, one being a minor chip to one of the upper tiles. The thick hand painted terra cotta tiles are set into a heavy wrought iron frame with wrought iron tabs to enable it to be affixed to a wall. Please ask questions before purchasing and thank you for looking! Please note that is local pick-up only from Palm Springs, California. I have listed $2500 as the shipping cost for purposes of completing the listing, but you are free to organize your own shipping.Condition:Excellent
