Plate with Shield Showing the Lamb of God


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The three small marks on the surface of this plate come from the firing process: to maximize space in the kiln, some wares were placed on supports that left blemishes where they came into contact with the plate. This plate was most likely a relatively inexpensive commission; otherwise, the artist would not have allowed the supports to mar the plate. The shield is probably the device of a religious organization.
