1930's German City Rathaus Meeting Hall Tile.
During a renovation of a large city Rathaus, Town Hall, and the removal of a false floor in the meeting hall around 5000 of these tiles where found underneath. The workmen managed to take up carefully around 400 of them before a city official ''blew his top'' and ordered under supervision the destruction of the rest. I saw a couple of hundred tiles this example being one of them. Its in nice solid condition , could do with a better clean and with a little time the back will reveal the makers information, ''VILLEROY & BOCH, METTLACH''.
