Also see . . . Robertson Art Tile Company. Robertson Art Tile (1890-1983) is a bit of an enigma in the history of American tile. While the name appropriately honors one of the most influential and productive families in American ceramics, its founder, George W. Robertson, lost interest in the operation, staying less than five years. The company, on the other hand, withstood the numerous tests of time eventually closing its doors in 1983, one of the industry’s longest surviving works.
