Large dish of Nevers "istoriati" mid-17th century

A very large Nevers dish, decorated in full and blue camaïeu of great fire, of a scene with "istoriati" representing Esther welcomed by Assurérus, king of the Persians.

Esther is brought up by her uncle Mordecai in Persian territory.
Ahasuerus, in whom some exegetes recognize King Xerxes, repudiated his wife Queen Vasthi. In order to choose a new wife he had a large number of young girls appear before him and chose Edissa, who became queen and took the Persian name of Esther.

This beautiful dish represents Esther with her maids welcomed by the Persian King Ahasuerus in front of his temple.

In the background, other women are consoling themselves for not having been chosen.

This dish was made between 1640 and 1660.
