Medieval Floor Tile

English, 1400-1475

Earthenware. Slip decorated with flowers in each corner. Accidental green in glaze, possibly from copper filings in the lead. The "diamond" formed by an unglazed channel. Traces of original lime mortar. From an English collection, bought well and thus offered at below market value. Good condition with minor glaze chips, no restoration.

5" square.
