A hand painted blue and white tile of a wolf, at least that is what it looks like though the head is a little odd, in profile running to the left. The animal is surrounded by a circle of a wavy line with dots in the wave troughs. Flowers fill 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: Losses along the edges, the lower right corner is chipped. Some surface scratching and slight discoloration in the cracks in the glaze. Remnants of old mortar on the back and edges and some old cardboard glued to the back.
