Oak Framed Galleon Tile*
Colourful little glazed square tile depicting a galleon under sail on a choppy sea.
A wonderfully stylized image, very nicely enclosed in a shaped dark oak frame and backed with pine that’s been stained to the same colour.
Possibly originally intended as a teapot stand but, although showing some slight crazing to the glaze, it doesn’t look to have ever been used for that purpose as there is an old ring for wall hanging at the top of the frame.
We haven’t removed the pine back to investigate the maker of the tile – if indeed it is marked – but it’s a great little object that so deserves to be displayed.
Approximately 20 cm square overall and around 120 years old.
