Maritime themed blue and white tile. Blue has a greenish hue and background is off white. Back has a circle with an upside down T through it. There is also a 3 on either side of this mark, and a 10 below.


I'm wondering which manufacturer made this tile. Is it Dutch? And how old it is. Thank-you.

German tile by Tonwerke Offstein (near Worms), c. 1900-1920. Decoration (in under-glaze technique) can be added elsewhere. The outlines of the ship and the vegetation seem to be printed (transfer print), then the design was further filled in with hand painting.
