Found on EBay – Batchelder Tile

Batchelder Tile EBay batchelder_birds_angelus_temple

This Batchelder tile, above  left, showing a pair of peacocks, has been listed on EBay. Interestingly enough, it’s the same pattern as the piece on the right, which I found in Aimee Semple McPherson’s quarters at Angelus Temple on a tour several years ago. Bidding on a pair of these peacock tiles, marked Batchelder Pasadena, starts at $137.50.

  1. Ernie Batchelder, an artist, lived in Pasadena, as do many creative people to this day. He was famous of course for his tiles & contribution to the Arts & Crafts period, as well as significant contributions to Pasadena. A Batchelder tile fireplace still stands in the Pasadena Playhouse.
