A set of twelve Dutch delft wall tiles of a hand painted blue basket of fruit inside a square with a white square behind it at 45 degrees with the same orientation as the tile with its manganese ground. A fourth of a blue flower with a touch of manganese is painted in each corner. Each tile is approximately 5 3/16 inches (13.5 cm) square. Though the theme remains the same each tile has some different details, e.g. one has a bug over the basket.

Condition; four of the tiles have been broken and glued. All have bumps and losses around the edges and some scratches on the surface. They were taken off of a wall or fireplace surround and took some damage in the process. Some still have mortar on the back.

Interesting to see the design pop when this many are together.
