This antique Delft tile depicts Cupid playing a game of hopscotch. It is a rare child's play scene, especially in combination with Cupid. What also makes this tile very rare is that it is painted in manganese. This was not a common colour for these type of tiles during this time period. The tile is decorated with 'spider' corner motifs and is overall in a good condition with just a small covered up chip on the top side an another small chip on the lower side.
