More Finds

It is so great to find things.  Here are some other forgotton items I found while sorting boxes.  I found these tiles in the town where I grew up, in a junk shop.  I love the style, they are hand painted and labeled on the back.  The artist is
Robert Darr Wert, no date though.

                                                     Even though these are labeled country, they have a retro modern sense to me.

    Bob and family were my neighbors. These were definately a country creation. If you ever want to part with them I collect his tile art. Died in the early 60’s of a heart attack while saving his sheep from a burning barn.

      Hi Noreen – I am a distant cousin of Bob’s. Glad to hear you knew him as neighbors. I knew his sister, Gertrude Ulmer very well. It’s nice to see his art
      is appreciated after all these years! Regards, Steve
