Renaissance Style 19th C. Hand Painted Majolica Wall Charger
Impressive Renaissance style 19th century hand painted Italian Majolica or Maoilica wall charger. The center is decorated with a classical scene featuring Poseidon pursuing Amymone and rescuing her from the Satyr. The wide border is decorated in nautical grotesques and acanthus scrolls.
The incredible colors are typical of the style found in the Renaissance works of Urbino and Deruta whose artists used these rich enamels to decorate their wares. The scenes often represented a story or Istoriato (history) from the Classics. The plate is in excellent condition fitted with a wire for hanging. These plates are works of art, beautiful for display as a grouping on a wall or placed on sideboards, or shelves.
Size: 18 1/2" Diameter
