Description

Four tiles in a frame. Earthenware, tin-glazed white on the upper surface and painted in bright blue. The four tiles form one repeat of the pattern. Each tile has a quarter circle in one corner, decorated with three spots, from which radiates a diaper panel, surmounted by a symmetrical arrangement of stylised ferns and flowers. In the opposite corner there is a quarter star, and in the two others a blue stripe with three reserved spots. On the two outer edges there are half flowers.
