Plate


Description Provenance Credit
Description This plate is an example of “Hispano-Moresque” ware, produced using traditional Islamic techniques. The central image of an escutcheon with a fleur-de-lys (stylized lily as the emblem of France) suggests that it was made on commission, possibly as a gift for someone at the French court. A very similar plate in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (inv. 243-1853) has in its center the arms of Mary of Castille, queen of Alfonso V of Aragon (reigned 1416-1458).
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore, [date of acquisition unknown], by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
