physical_description
Tile of white earthenware, formed from plastic clay. The back is "combed" to provide keying and there are the remnants of pegs protruding from the back of the tile, which would originally have been present in each corner. The tile is decorated with an underglaze transfer print of a landscape, showing a mountain scene with a horseman with a sabre, and a man on the ground with a shield. This is printed in blue.
