A rarely found tile with a scene showing Queen Isabella I of Castile and Christopher Columbus. Isabella famously sold her jewels to finance the voyage of Columbus which led to the opening of the 'New World' of America and this illustrates the negotiations. Manufacturer unknown, perhaps a one-off style pattern for the manufacturer for it is likely to have been produced as a commemoraive tile for the five hundredth anniversary in 1892.

Verso very clean, ring grip pattern, unmarked.
