Manganese Delft Tile
Dimensions:W: 13.3cm (5.2")H: 13.3cm (5.2")D: 0.8cm (0.3")
An 18th century Dutch Delft tile. This tile is well painted, in manganese, with a landscape scene which includes a church and sailing boats. Around the scene is an unusual, geometric border which is also painted in manganese. The tile dates from c.1780. As the glaze on Delft is very soft it is prone to chipping or fritting around the edges. This piece has very minimal fritting but there is a very small chip to one corner.
