DEEP DISH

First half of the 19th century h.: 8 cm
d. (rim): 28 cm d. (base): 6.6 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 purplish brown and greenish brown, and finished with a light-yellow glaze. At the center of the dish is a large triangle with a lacelike border framing stylized flowers suggested by discrete brush strokes. The whole is bordered on the rim with two stripes sandwiching spaced-out lacework patterns. The outer surface has been left with neither strip nor glaze.
