This rare antique Delft tile depicts three men reeling in the fishing nets. At the background there is a little village with a windmill and a fire beacon. The tile was made around 1760 and is decorated with the 'carnation' corner motif. It was made in the Dutch city of Amsterdam. An interesting detail is that the tile used to be part of a so called 'smuiger', which is a type of chimney that was popular in the province of North-Holland. The tile is in a good condition. Note that it has been cut slightly along the right side.
