The Continental Faience and Tile Company
Expected Publication: 2020
Ben Tyjeski, along with Kelly Dudley and Kathy Roberts, are creating a book on the Continental Faience and Tile Company. Between 1924 and 1943 in South Milwaukee this artistic, hand-made tile-producing company created some of the most gorgeous tiles we have in the Midwest. Their product is found on floors and walls in many homes, apartments, churches, shops, and municipal buildings in the Milwaukee area, and cities nearby. This book will feature the story of the company's founder, Carl Bergmans, the growth of his company, and many installations of their work in Wisconsin.
The authors are welcoming any information that can be provided. Please email Ben Tyjeski at firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe you have tile in your home, or if you have other information to share. Thank you!
