DEEP DISH

First half of the 19th century h.: 6.5 cm
d. (rim): 20.8 cm d (base): 6.8 cm

A deep dish with a flat everted rim, narrowing down to a ring base. Red earthenware with a white slip on the inside, painted over in brown, and finished with a transparent light-yellow glaze. At the center of the dish is a stylized flower composed of discrete brush strokes, bordered on the rim with two stripes of the same colour. Traces of tripod kiln spurs are clearly visible on the inner surface, while the outer surface has been left with neither strip nor glaze. The rounded base has been shallowly chipped at one point.
