History of Wells Tile & Antiques Wells Antiques was established in 1992. At the time the intent was to join the intimate community of thrift and antique dealers that had been in Echo Park for over a quarter century. Over time the business evolved into a more updated shop specializing in distressed furniture. Scott Wells, the owner of Wells Antiques, then began taking a specific interest in art pottery and at the same time came across his first California tile table. His interest in tiles increased when he stumbled on a large collection of antique tiles. At that time there was very little information available on antique tiles. So, he sought out the few tile experts around at the time and began what would become an endless quest for knowledge. In doing so Scott became aware of how few dealers there were in the country that actually specialized in this area of the antique business. Without a doubt there was a niche just waiting to be filled. The public awareness and appreciation of these treasures has not only blossomed but has in fact exploded over the past 10 years. In turn Scott has developed a personal love and appreciation for the aesthetic beauty and worth of the tiles themselves. This drove him to continue acquiring more. With knowledge comes success and the business as well as Scott's personal reputation as an expert in the field has grown tremendously. He is a dedicated conservationist and stays busy educating the public about the worth, beauty, and historical value of antique tiles. Throughout the years he has been an advisor and contributor to many national and local institutions, including California Heritage Museum and Tile Heritage Foundation. Scott has worked with authors, such as Norman Karlson, sharing his knowledge and general expertise on his favorite subject. At present, he is collaborating with Diane Keaton and Marty Newman on a book about Hillside Pottery. Wells Antiques itself is unique as far as antique stores go due to the degree of specialization that is represented. The general feel is a dusty antique store but as you wander a little further that first impression fades and suddenly you feel as though you've stumbled onto a den of antiquities'.a virtual museum of art pottery, tiles, garden ware and furniture!
