In 2005 in the Old Town of Elblag (Elbing) a number of fragments of stove tiles were found on the building plot at 9 Bednarska Street. The tiles were dated to the 15th c; the dating was based on the fragments of clay vessels, both local and imported. The pieces come from at least four finial tiles decorated with openwork tracery topped with wimpergs. The ornament has the form of a late-Gothic twin-lancet window with the motif of quatrefoil above. The finials of the tiles have an attachment shaped as a woman's head with distinct features and hairstyle. One of the tiles has a slightly different tracery ornament - some traces on its base suggest that the tracery might have had the form of a late-Gothic single-lancet window with a quatrefoil placed centrally over it. There is also a fragment of a filling tile; its ornamental border is identical with the wimpergs of the finial tiles and it has a six-pointed star in the corner.
