Islamic 8-Point Star Tile from Afghanistan

This beautiful hand-painted Islamic cobalt blue and yellow eight-pointed star tile came from Afghanistan. It is likely from the 19th Century or older. The design is lovely with a central yellow floral motif, two intertwined geometric four-point stars ending in floral buds, a four-color palette of yellow, turquoise and white against a beautifully vivid cobalt blue background. The piece is very decorative and can be used in a number of ways including being hung on the wall, resting on a plate shelf, or used as a trivet. This would make a lovely addition to someone's tile collection. Size is 9 inches from point to opposite point and 1/2 inch thick. See our other Islamic tile auction of a square tile of the same time period.
Condition: Excellent condition with only a few minor chips along the side edge and on one point tip, not detracting from the beauty of the tile. There is one small 1/8" surface ding where the glaze is chipped down to the clay, but it is at an intersection in the design and is hardly visible.
