This exceptional Delft tile was made around 1660 in the Dutch city of Harlingen. Its production area is easily recognizable, as the cream white glaze and the dark shades of blue are characteristic for Harlingen. The tile depicts a fierce looking merman holding a very young baby boy. It comes with quite an entertaining extra as the small child is actually peeing. The tile is decorated with 'ox-head' corner motifs and is in a good condition. It has minor restorations on the tips of the lower corners and a more significant restoration on the top right corner.
