Ok this is for a 1978 Hand-Made Dated Christmas Tile, and will be a long listing so any Perspective Buyers will understand What They are Purchasing. First of all who were Donald & Mildred Othmer-- Donald and Mildred Othmer were hardly a remarkable couple. He was a professor of chemical engineering at Polytechnic University in Brooklyn, with a small consulting business on the side. She was a former teacher who spent most of her time volunteering for New York Civic and Arts organizations. They had no children. Donald F. Othmer (1904–1995) and Mildred Topp Othmer (1907–1998), both natives of Nebraska, met in 1949 and married in New York in 1950. A prolific inventor, with more than 150 patents, and a founding editor of the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology, Donald worked for Eastman Kodak for four years before going to Brooklyn Polytechnic in 1932. Mildred was a high-school teacher and a buyer for her family’s department store in Omaha. In 1988 they launched a challenge grant to establish the Donald F. and Mildred Topp Othmer Library of Chemical History at CHF. To preserve their vision, both endowed the Othmer Library in their wills, making possible its continued operation and growth for the future.

But when Donald and Mildred Othmer died -- he in 1995, she in 1998 -- it turned out they were quite remarkable indeed. No one Had any idea of There Immense wealth until after they died. What I have for Sale are Tiles From there Penthouse in New York City, That They would send to close friends each year from 1960 until thier deaths. I will be Listing many Tiles from Various Years, The Process with which these tiles were created was as Follow---Mildred Othmer would look out over the New York Skyline from there Penthouse Dining Room Window and Then Sketch a Depiction for the Front of the Tile, The Tiles Would Then be Ordered From Master Porcelain Artist's From the Iwoa Jiki Porcelain Company in Japan. After the Tiles Were Crafted and sent to the Othmers Donald World Hand Inscribe The Back Them with a Personal Message for each Year and Theme, then Sign Them with Both His and his Wifes Names. The Fronts all Adorn the Midron Sign which was a Combination of Both of There first names. These Tile are Very Unique and Quite Detailed with 3 Various Thickness Layers of Raised Designs. The Tiles Measure 6 by 6 inches with a 1/2 inch lip edge. I will be Happy to Combine Shipping or Multiple Tile Packages at a Discounted rate. The Othmers Left an Endowment after there deaths for a Museum and Foundation Called CHF or the Chemical Heritage Foundation.
