A comparable single tulip tile panel was sold in these rooms, 15 May 2002, lot 99.
A very small amount of these tulip tiles where found at two locations in Hoorn and were therefore attributed to Hoorn. They where probably used as a frieze or as a plinth at the underside of the wall and fragments are found covered with soot, which indicates that the tiles where also used in a fireplace. The tulip is probably after a print by Anthony Claesz or Pieter Holsteijn II, second quarter 17th century.
