Description: A magnificent Italian maiolica istoriato charger, Urbino, circa 1540. The source for the ambitious decoration is The Feast of Herod, after Sebald Beham. There are a few alterations to the print such as the figure of Death which has not been painted on the charger. There appears to be a tantalizing possibility of a signature painted to the front, on the curve of the charger it is concealed within the dress of the lady seated to the right of the main table, and appears diagonally on the bias of her dress. Chip repaired (approx. 3.5 cm) to the bottom of the charger, 41.5 cm diameter See front cover and other illustrations Note: We are grateful to Professor Timothy Wilson of the Ashmolean Museum in the identification and dating of this charger and to Dr Mercedes Ceron, also of the Ashmolean Museum for her research in identifying the iconography of the charger See front cover colour illustrationView additional info
