Good evening, Thank you!  2 tiles with the flowerpots are Dutch Delftware tiles dating: 1625-1650. It is somewhat difficult to say the exact production place. The polychrome bird tile is a 20th century copy/replica. The other 2 tiles were popular in many cities so they were probably made in several different cities. With kind regards, Edwin van Drecht.
