This charming Delft tile was made around 1640 and depicts a 'Snake's head' flower, also known as the 'Fritillaria'. In Dutch we know these flowers as 'kievitsbloemen'. The colourful scene is captured in an 'accolade' shaped border and the surrounding areas are decorated with the 'Wanli' inspired corner motif. The tile is in a good and pure condition, but clearly with superficial wear and chips at the lower half of the tile.
