A pair of beam-ends carved out of wood that represent Tijl and Nele Measurements: Tijl - approx. 37 x 19 x 19 cm: and Nele - approx. 35 cmx 22 cm x 21 cm. Originate from Flanders, of unknown date. Please take a good look at the photos.

Tijl Uilenspiegel is a character from Dutch-Germanic folklore. According to the saga, Uilenspiegel was a rascal who travelled across the Netherlands and Germany in the 14th century and played the clown with his tomfoolery. The novel in which Charles de Coster revived him in 1867, “The legend of Uilenspiegel”, resulted in the character of Uilenspiegel being recreated several centuries later in Flanders.
In the book Tijl first sees the light of day in 1527, on the same day as the future King Philip II of Spain. The Tijl Uilenspiegel of De Coster is more than simply a lighthearted Tramp and Rascal: he is a Flemish independence activist who fought on the side of the Geuzen against Spanish rule. He is assisted by his good-natured fat friend Lamme Goedzak and his girlfriend and foster sister Nele. Since then, Uilenspiegel is associated with Flanders. (Source: Wikipedia).
