Ewer Basin with the Gathering of Manna


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The demand for Italian maiolica spread to other European countries by the late 16th century, and some Italian potters found it profitable to move their workshops to France. The painting of this basin is awkward in comparison with others displayed here but it is interesting as possibly having been produced in Lyons, an important city on the route between Italy and Paris. The composition comes from a popular illustrated Bible printed in Lyons during the mid-16th century.
