Stove tile at the Steingasse in Salzburg, Austria

This ceramic tile in the Steingasse is reminiscent of the ceramicist Luise Spannring (1894-1982). In Salzburg, she became known as the founder of a ceramic school. Her works are exhibited in numerous museums, in the Salzburg Museum you can see ceramic nativity scenes from her.

The ceramic tile is also reminiscent of the stove setter (Hafner) trade. The Hafner had their branches in the Steingasse next to the linen weavers and white tanners. For a long time, an elevation in the Steingasse was called Hafnerb├╝hel.
