Italian Urbino Style Tin Glazed Majolica Istoriato Plate

Presenting for sale a large 19th century Italian hand painted Majolica plate or wall charger featuring the Renaissance painting and known as an Istoriato (history plate).

This plate is typical of the style created by the workshops of Urbino or Pesaro in the 16th century. The colors were usually vivid and earthy, very often framed with borders featuring grotesques on a cobalt or mustard colored ground.

The plate is in excellent condition ready to be hung and admired as a piece of art or placed on a large plate stand.
