Description:

This early sixteenth-century Manises dish is among the most individualistic examples preserved in the DDFIA collection. It features a single leaping deer (or goat), whose general outlines have been incised into the ceramic body. Other incised wares with similarly large lions, bulls, birds, and rabbits are known to exist, but it was more common for the undersides of Manises dishes to be painted with oversized birds and animals.
