Early ceramic tile

early tile

 

Recently received in the museum is a Delft ceramic tile which has been dated as circa 1675, and has a man hitting a shuttleock with a battledore in blue on white.

Donated by Heather Nielsen as part of a large collection of shuttlecock art items, this is almost certainly the oldest item in the museum collections.


Now on display the tile can be viewed in one of the cabinets in museum corridor.
