This table and the next one are both created by Taylor Tilery (1930 - 1941). Four corner and two stretcher tiles in Spanish design create a nice oval image, the ring of fire. The corner tile with different glazes appears on page 161 of the California Tile, The Golden Era 1910-1940 (vol. 2). In the Taylor catalog the designs are marked as #147 Corner and #147 Stretcher.
The tiles are set in a fairly simple mahogany frame. The wood is in excellent condition, while the tiles have very tight surface hairlines that, I suspect, don't go all the way through.
