Free with your order! Play cube with images of old Dutch tiles
3-dimensional Old Dutch tiles. Tile cubes to play with, build and rattle. On these cubes are images of tiles from the early 17th century. These multicolored tiles were made in the Netherlands in the time that Delft Blue specimens did not exist yet. The production technique, using four colors, was taken over from Southern Europe. Many southern motifs, such as pomegranates and bunches of grapes, were originally used in the Netherlands. Later, more Dutch elements were incorporated in the image, such as tulips and the Dutch Lion. On early tiles, the corner motifs occupied an equally important position as the central image. And only when you put four tiles together did the complete pattern appear. With the four fabric cubes stitched together you make 6 different Old Dutch tile tableaux.
