This early 19th-century mural, dating back to approximately 1800-1825, features a beautifully adorned polychrome flower vase depicted on 24 tiles. It was crafted in the Dutch city of Utrecht. The vase is decorated with various types of flowers that attract lovely butterflies and dragonflies. At the bottom center of the vase, you'll find four cherubic putti engrossed in a game of 'blind man's buff.' One of the putti is blindfolded, while the others playfully tap him with sticks or create noise with a tambourine to get his attention. The blindfolded putti goal is to catch one of the other players, leading to a rotation of roles within the game. The mural is in a good condition and has been carefully prepared by us for potential reuse in tiling projects.
Finding a mural of this exceptional quality is like coming across a unicorn. However, we can no longer state this as we have the mirrored version of this mural also in stock. You can find it here. Although the murals can be purchased separately, they of course make an extraordinary pair. One of the photos shows the two murals next to each other.
