Artist/maker unknown, Dutch
This fluted dish represents one of the finest products made by the potters of Rotterdam. Formed on a mold, it is an adaptation of a fan shape that appeared in Italian maiolica made in Faenza and Deruta during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Maiolica is another type of tin-glazed pottery known for its bright colors over a white background.
