This rare tile of grey fritware is painted in colours on a white slip and covered with a clear glaze. Painted in red, blue and green, outlined in olive-green, with an ogee-shaped compartment bordered by serrated leaves and enclosing sprays of carnations, hyacinths and other flowers. In the four corners there are incomplete similar compartments.
Two tiles with the exact design are in the V&A Collection (405-1900 and 405A-1900). Tiles of a similar design have been found in the Louvre (AD 8368/1 -2) and the Pergamon Museum (1877,512 a, 1877,512 b, 1877,512 c)
