This charming pair of Delft tile murals was made around 1860 in the Dutch city of Utrecht. One depicts a dog (a whippet type), while the other one depicts a cat. They were two important family members and were therefore often portrayed on Delft tile murals. The cat keeps the house clear from rodents. The dog guards the house and its property from unwanted visitors. An interesting detail is that the dog and cat are both depicted on a marble floor. Marble was expensive to work with and was only accessible to the lucky few. Clearly the original owners of the murals found it important that it was clear that they were able to afford this. The murals are in a good condition with one superficial restoration on the top right corner of the top right tile of the dog. The cat has two glued fractures. One of them is in the top left corner, the other one in the lower left tile. The mural comes completley prepared to be reused for a tiling project.

  • Product disclaimer

    Antique tiles
    Antique tiles are handmade, so variations in color, size and texture are to be expected. Also, due to the age of the items, small chips and signs of use are common and considered to be part of antique tiles and the overall experience. Our tiles have been rinsed and cleaned intensely, making them suitable to be reused. However, we can never guarantee that all traces of sooth, salt or other forms of pollution have completely been extracted from the tiles. We expect our customers to be aware of this matter.

    Color accuracy
    Due to the relative inconsistencies of various display monitors, the colors you see on your screen may not be a totally accurate reproduction of the actual product. We strive to make our colors as accurate as possible, but screen images are intended as a guide only and should not be regarded as absolutely correct.
