A group of four blue and white ceramic tiles on pastoral themes.

Three of them display women, staff in hand, standing between two stylized hills, minding a pair of stylized sheep. In the fourth, the shepherd sits on a small hill, while the woman in the foreground is drawing water from a well. Four sheep inhabit the foreground, while in the distance we see three more sheep, a church, an octet of birds, and two ships in the sea.

Dutch, 18th century.

Each tile measures approximately 5” X 5”
