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. I believe the realtor called it "victor light" but I have not been able to find any info on the internet. Does anyone know what this is, and any history?

It looks like glass like what they used on storefronts. Are there tiles in the bathroom from the same Period?

I think the name is Vitro which is a material similar to Carrara glass. It's structural glass. The tile on the floor looks like a more recent addition as well as the glass doors.

Vitrolite. This type of glass was featured in OHJ a few years ago. Tim Dunn is a Vitrolite restoration specialist. Here is his website, which has a lot of info on the subject:
