This rare Delft tile depicts a camp with tents. It might be a military camp or a camp of a group of travellers. Interesting details are the tower on the left and the cross in the center. It gives away that the camp is most likely located in a rather developed area and that the people inside the camp are Christians. The tile is decorated with 'ox-head' corner motifs, painted in blue and manganese. It is in a good condition with a small chip on the lower left corner and the normal superficial wear and chips.
