Offered for sale is a large Italian Maiolica Deruta wall charger hand painted with a cobalt border of Rafallesco design featuring grotesques and faces framing a large allegorical scene. The charger is reminiscent of the beautiful Renaissance pieces created in earlier centuries from the Umbria region of Italy.
The charger is fitted with a wire in the back enabling the charger to be hung on a wall. These hand painted plates are showy pieces and look very attractive in a wall grouping or mingled with other pieces of art. They always add rich bold colors to any setting.
The charger is in excellent condition with a crazed finish original to the piece.
Size: 20" Diameter.
