This Delft tile mural was fabricated around 1800 in the Dutch city of Harlingen. It depicts a koff (cargo ship) under sail. The mural was painted by Meindert Jans Vogelzang, who was at this time one of the most skilled painters working in the tile industry. A koff is a historical type of sailing vessel that was used for coastal shipping off Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The mural is in a good condition with professionally glued fractures, which is almost always inevitable for tile murals this age. Note that none of the fractures or chips have been restored. We have left it in a very pure condition. Of course, it can still be restored on request. Apart from leaving restorations out, the mural has completely been prepared by us to be reused for tiling projects.
