A rare tile with a picture of a satyr holding a wine jug.
The satyr is often confused with a devil, which is by no means the case. Satyrs regularly appear in an Arcadian atmosphere while chasing nymphs. Satyrs are wild demigods, usually in the retinue of the wine god Bacchus along with maenads.

Tiles with only the painting of a satyr are very rare and probably have been one separate series.

Lit. Mythologische voorstellingen op Nederlandse tegels, Jan Pluis & Reinhard Stupperich, p. 203-4.

The tile is in good condition, with the normal superficial wear and small chips according to age.
With a few plaster filled chips around the edges.
