Subject:Need help identifying calligraphy on Chinese tile
Posted By: Roger Sat, Nov 23, 2019 IP: 2601:281:c202:b68a:a

Hi All,
I would greatly appreciate your help translating the calligraphy on this old Chinese tile. Unfortunately, it has an old repair running through words. Thank you!

三譲徐州 -  Offering of Xu Province three times
(Tao Qian offers Liu Bei the governorship of Xu provincethree times - a well known story from the Romance of Three Kingdoms)
歳次癸未大暑季 - Dated in the Year of Water-Sheep (1943) in the Season of Great Heat (July - Lunar)
南x李x氏x作 - Nan X, Made by Master Li X
(Unfortunately I can't read all the characters,
they are very individualistic)
Seals are illegible,

With regards,
