Made in Delft, The Netherlands     Circa 18th Century

This handsome blue and white tile depicts two well-dressed men engaging with each other. One of the men is possibly holding a rosary.  This is a nice example of delftware without corner motifs. The Netherlands began to produce tin-glazed earthenware in the late 15th Century. By the late 17th Century Delft had become the most prominent center of production in all of Europe and its wares were highly prized for their beauty, technical achievement, and accomplished artistry.
