Tin-glazed earthenware tile with painted blue and white decoration; buff-colored body with white glaze; circular rondel with biblical scene of Moses with the Ten Commandments; ox-head corner motifs; tile broken.
These tiles are from a fireplace in the Beekman Mansion (possibly the nursery room) at First Avenue and 51st St., New York, NY. They were removed and incorporated in a settle (bench) when the structure was torn down in 1874.
