DEEP DISH

First half of the 19th century h.: 6 cm
d. (rim): 21.6 cm d. (base): 5.6 cm

A rather broad dish with a flat everted rim, narrowing down to a ring base. Red earthenware, with a white slip on the inside, painted over in purplish brown, and finished with a transparent, colourless glaze. At the center of the dish is a stylized flower motif composed of discrete and sweeping brush strokes, bordered on the rim by more brush strokes of the same type and colour. The outer surface has been left with neither strip nor glaze. The dish has been restored.
