A small polychrome tile of two windmills


The tile has a boat and a fisherman in the foreground and some buildings and two windmills in the back.


A friend who was originally from the Netherlands passed away recently and left me this tile. I am curious to know if there is any more information about it.

4.5 inches x 4.5 inches

This is a so called cloisonné tile produced at the Porceleyne Fles factory, also known as Royal Delft, in the first half of the 20th century. They are cute and a very collectible. Search online for more and easy to find information (and webshops) with these objects.
