Masonic Glazed Tile by Wheeling

Here is a beautiful four color Masonic tile with a cobalt blue background, orange Square & Compasses and ivory color Letter "G" in the center. The raised relief portions of the embossed detail are bare earthenware surrounded by black. The glaze is evenly crazed and assume intentional by the manufacturer. Marked on the back in raised letters "WHEELING XMX, FU, 24." . This is a very rare tile in good condition!  It measures 6 inches square and is circa 1910-1920.
