Description:

During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, luster ceramics made in Manises, a suburb of Valencia on Spain’s eastern coast, were made for Italian, Spanish, and French patrons. Accordingly, Christian symbols, Latin inscriptions, and European blazons were standard components of Manises lusterware iconography. This exceptional dish bears the arms (two intersecting maces) of the Gondi banking family of Florence. It can be dated to the late fifteenth century.
