Ridged ceramic tile formed from tan colored clay with stained brown surface and shaded with bright blue glaze. The tile's composition includes a running stag, with head turned back to the left. A triple line border circles around the stag except for the stag's hind leg that extends across the border into the bottom left corner. The other corners of the tile outside the circular border contain abstract leaf motifs.
