One tile, The Fox and the Stork, English Liverpool printed delftware tile by John Sadler
One tile, The Fox and the Stork, English Liverpool printed delftware tile by John Sadler. Slightly less than 5"x5". $104.01 from Rodney Harmic, Dover, DE, through Ebay, Feb., '00/
Transfer of printed design in black. "88" border. For some reason I find the image slightly hard to read. The stork has his beak in a big demijohn bottle. The fox on hind legs looks almost horse-like! Notice the shadow dish in the foreground. This tile is slightly smaller than nineteenth-century tiles I have found. The lower right corner is broken and repaired, and there are several small semi-circular chips around the front edge. I have kept some border in the scanner image of this tile to show the flaws around the edges. A great find!
