This circular tile has circular designs of a range of sizes. At the very center has a small circle, with a ring around it. Surrounding this are six evenly spaced small circles, which result in an overall six-petalled stylized floral-like design. Surrounding it is another thin circular band, and another circle of evenly spaced dots, enclosed by another circular band. This design at center thus far represents a lotus seedpod. Extending from it are eight petals, with another ring of eight larger petals set behind them. Finally, another ring pattern of two thin circular bands with small dots between them creates the border of the tile.<br />

This gray-white, low-fired earthenware concave eave-end roof tile features a scroll design. Although each motif on the front decorative surface of the tile is different, the scroll design demonstrates some degree of left-right symmetry. Traces of a parallel pattern made by a paddle four centimeters wide are visible on the flat surface of the tile. Traces of trimming and smoothing with water are also visible on the sides and joints.

This image builds up from a densely packed lower foreground, comprised of a tree and sloping rooftops littered with chimneys. A church tower, surrounded by birds, rises against a blank sky in the top center of the image, forming an overall pyramidal composition that leads the viewer&rsquo;s eye up. The roofs of the houses in the foreground seem to waver with unevenly laid shingles, indicating that this is an old village. The church tower combines a gothic-style rose window and pointed arches with rounded windows and a much less ornately ornamented belltower, all more characteristic of Romanesque and Renaissance styles than Gothic.<br />
The style of etching combines both precise descriptive detail and more summary, sketchy renderings.&nbsp;Title in pencil, lower left of margin. Signed and dated in pencil right of center below platemark: &quot;John Taylor Arms, 1932&quot;.
