In Deruta's early 16th-century majolica, some subjects seem rarer than others. This is precisely the case with this large ceremonial dish (da Pompa), depicting in its center a seated Virgin holding in both hands the Infant Jesus seated on her lap. A phylactery bearing the inscription "AVE MARIA ISTELLA MATOTINA ALTA RIGINA" unfolds in the field. In the sky, an eight-rayed star. The border is decorated with a rich compartmentalized geometric pattern. At present, this is the only known dish with this motif.
