Thank you for your inquiry, Ms. Cole.

As a non-profit collecting institution, Historic New England cannot ethically provide appraisal values for objects owned by individuals.
I would recommend you contact an antiques dealer or auction house in your area, as they will have the best idea of the market value of your tile.
I wish you the best of luck in your search and thank you again for your question.

Sincerely,
Nicole Chalfant
