A Rare Counterpart Pair of 19th Century Dutch Delft Tile Panels CAT & DOG
This is a great pair of late 19th century Delft polychrome tile pictures, one depicting a "Keeshond" or "Barge Dog" and the other a House Cat. The cat is depicted curiously with human facial characteristics and quite a bit larger than the dog. They are hand painted in manganese, blue dark green and yellow, each seated in an outdoor setting with a wispy blue sky around them. The border of the tiles forms a manganese frame around the central image.
Each of the 4-tile panels measure about 10 inches x 10 inches, with each individual tile measuring about 5 inches. The tiles are about 3/8 inches deep, mounted on plywood and ready for display.
The Dutch delft tiles were made by Ravesteijn, Utrecht Netherlands, c. 1890-1920
The tiles are in great condition with no chips crack or repairs. Shiny glaze, clear paint as shown in the photos. Contact us for additional photos or with any questions.
