Default To lousat: porcelaine

I am sure they aren't portuguese because the personages, they are very different of those used in portugal and the style is different too. here it is more than tiles, it is a porcelain job, maybe in delft style. but I am not sure.

take care

jorge

Default The tiles

Hello Jorge and Luciano,

If I'm not mistaken, at the time there were many trade relations between the Netherlands and Saint Petersburg.
So there is a good chance that these tiles come from the Netherlands ... but I'm not sure of it.

Best regards,
Paul
