Millefiori tile: a roughly triangular fragment of a tile (?) having a red field. A considerable portion of the field is covered with a lozenge pattern composed of small squares bordered in red, yellow, green, brown, and blue. A few of the squares enclose conventionalized flowers in blue. The obverse has certainly been repolished. The reverse is matt and slightly iridescent.
