Can anyone help us with naming this deco tile?

My husband and I recently bought a home that has this marble looking tile around the fireplace and in one bathroom. The realtor told us it is original to the home (built in 1925) and the tile was made in Evansville IN. Production was stopped in the 1920's as well.

"New" Bungalow Under Construction

I have a vacation spot down in Maryland and the bad news is that the house burned down in 2007. The good news is that the rebuild is under way.
