Leftovers Day 22 -- George Washington Bathed Here

Sometimes you find the strangest things at estate sales.  

You have to take them at their word (or writing). Who would make something up like that?

I couldn't find any info on a remodel that took place at Mt. Vernon in 1954.  At first I thought it was probably tile from a later period after a previous renovation, but it appears to be quarried stone that's been glazed rather than ceramic, so who knows?

The things this tile must have witnessed (besides a naked George Washington).
