Charleston SC Online Marketplace - The word Tole comes from the French, meaning lacquered or enamelled metal-ware, often gilded. It also means a table or board. From the Archival records and articles in the UK, it is known that the Schools of Art of the time (1700's) took apprentices and trained them, in either the 'one-stroke' style required for decorating furniture, or the 'one-stroke' style required for decorating pottery.

In Traditional Tole, Oil paint was, and still is, the medium used. Two or more colours are loaded into the brush to complete each element of the design, painted wet-on-wet with one stroke of the brush. (Tole is often referred to as 'one stroke painting') All the elements are then built up to complete the design, with fruit, flowers and leaves being the main components. Gilding is hardly ever used these days, its heyday seems to have been from 1790's to 1870's.

In the 1700s tole painting began in the Schools of Art in the United Kingdom. Teachers instructed apprentices in the art of decorative painting. This original form of "one stroke painting" was used to paint metal trays and later coffee pots and other forms of enamel ware. A painter would be hired by businesses in the UK.
