Dutch Delft manganese tile, biblical scene in John, Jesus before Pilate? Late 18th century

$275.00 AUD

Manganeze tile of a biblical scene of a king on a throne and a man in robes within a round border and flower corners.

Inscribed:

‘Han, 26’

Late 18th century

13cm x 13cm

‘HAN’ is an abbreviation of Johan, or John in Dutch. However, there is no chapter 26 in John – and 2.6 is the miracle of the water pots – so it seems the artist has made a mistake when writing the verse, which would perhaps be 19.13 – “Pilate… brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the Judgment Seat in a place that is called the Pavement…”.
