Tin-glazed earthenware (delft)
Acc. No. 1989-168
Square tile. Bluish tin glaze decorated in manganese with a European house surrounded by rocks, a fence, and trees; studded border and Michaelmas daisy corners.
Label:Several tiles that have the same corners, borders, and style of painting, but which show different buildings, are probably from the same series. Compared to a Liverpool tile with the same border and corners but decorated in blue (CWF accession 1989-169), this Bristol made tile is slightly larger, has a flat back, and is well cut. Some in this series have pinholes in the back.
