At first the title of this tile on our website was 'weaving'. Thanks to a visitor to our website we now know that a more accurate title is 'the spinner'. She wrote:"The woman is holding a handspindle with a full cop in one hand and has what's almost certainly a niddy-noddy in the other. The niddy-noddy is used to measure yarn before it's rolled up into a ball or turned into a skein. So the real title should be "The spinner"!".
We are experts when it comes down to Delft tiles, but we clearly still have something to learn when it is about spinning or weaving.
The tile dates from around 1660 and is decorated with 'fleur-de-lis' corner motifs. It is overall in a very good condition with the normal superficial wear and chips (mainly top right corner). It also has a chip on the rear side.
