DEEP DISH

First half of the 19th century h.: 4.5 cm
d. (rim): 16.3 cm d. (base): 5.3 cm

A deep dish with a flat everted rim, narrowing down to a ring base. Red earthenware with a white slip decorated in purple, and finished with a transparent, colourless glaze (except for the outer surface, which has been left with neither slip nor glaze). At the center of the dish is a stylized floral motif composed of free brush strokes arranged in the form of a wheel-of-fortune. Two stripes run around the rim, which has been chipped in places.
