Hi! This was a custom commission designed by Rookwood Pottery in 1929. You can check out more about this project here: http://visualingual.wordpress.com/2012/01/09/carew-tower-in-downtown-cincinnati/

Rookwood still exists, producing some of their old designs as well as continuing to design new architectural tile. You can see their product line here: https://www.rookwood.com/gallery.php

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Also in 2004 Dr. Townley found like-minded investors, and together they restored the company in Cincinnati. Today the tiles are sought-after, particularly by those looking for authentic tile for Arts and Crafts (Craftsman) homes, as the principle at the very root of Craftsman style is placing a high value on hand-crafted artistic details.Much of downtown Cincinnati was growing during the art deco era, and Rookwood provided plenty of locally manufactured detail. Carew Tower, shown here, is a high-rise complex in Cincinnati known for its French art deco style. Rookwood designs flank the east and west entrances.Maya Drodz of VisuaLingual has documented much of the Rookwood splendor seen around Cincinnati and provided many of these photos.
