This exceptional Delft tile was made around 1660 and depicts a well-painted scene of a small village near a canal. It seems like the lady is looking at the painter, waiting for him to put the boat ashore. To the right is a not burning fire beacon depicted. The center building is a so called 'langhuis =longhouse', a typical Dutch farm during this time period. The tile is decorated with 'ox-head' corner motifs and is overall in a good condition. Note that it has a superficial chip on the right side (near the boats under sail).
