Tile

The tile is incomplete; one of the corners is missing. It is square in shape. Its rim is slightly beveled on three sides, and straight on the other. There are traces of glaze on the back, as well as on one of the sides, and traces of mortar. The body is beige and hard; the decoration is hand-painted purple. It is of the rural landscape type. Painted in the center of the tile, it is surrounded by a double ring and consists of a building with a tower, probably a Protestant church, spread over a terrace; they are flanked by a fence and probably a windmill, as well as a well; vegetation is painted on a foreground terrace, and the sky features a few clouds. The preserved corner of the tile is adorned with a geometric motif, consisting of four beads with solid cores arranged in a square, from which scrolls emerge.
