A blue and white hand painted wall tile of a dog rising up on its hind legs. The animal is surrounded by a circle of a wavy line with dots in the wave troughs and flowers in the corners. It is 5 1/8 inches (13 cm) square about ½ inch (1.2 cm) tall. The red clay sides are beveled so that the back is slightly smaller than the front. This style of decoration was used in the 2nd quarter of the 17th century.

Condition: damage along the edges, especially the right one with a big chip in the upper right corner that has been partially filled. Remnants of old mortar on the back and edges and some old cardboard glued to the back. Surface scratches and a slight discoloration.

A well painted lively dog
