Rectangular plaque of earthenware, covered on the front with presumed tin glaze. The back, to which mortar adheres, is formed into squares in relief, streaks of glaze remain on the `ribs' between. Painted on the front with the stoning of St Stephen in a landscape; upper left God blessing. Above the saint's head is a shield of arms, blue a winged serpent biting its tail. Broken into several pieces and restored.
