Is it a monochrome tile or a lithophane?

I wouldn't call it Kitsch or schmaltzy. It's very nice.

If it's a tile, Sherwin & Cotton did them in that shape.
The "Gladstone" one in brown is very common.

Sorry, I should have given more details. It is a tile. It is monochrome. It has a degree of relief, so it is not flat. Having googled Sherwin and Cotton I have to say there is a similarity to the Emaux Ombrants style. The dark and light tones in the picture seem to be made by differing the depth of the glaze, hence the shaded enamel nomenclature, I spose.

I've been checking out the S&C tiles and this is actually only one and a half squares long as opposed to the two squares long format. I am still stumped....

I would say 95% it is a Sherwin and Cotton tile. They were buggers for not marking the backs.

One site you could check out though is Tile Heaven, great resource for information on tiles.
