Rare earthenware dish of Moustiers, with twelve indented sides and slightly gadrooned border. Blue monochrome decor at large fire, in the center of the basin in a frame decorated with blue threads and a lace frieze, a hare hunting scene from an engraving
From Antonio TEMPESTA (1555 - 1630).
Of the nine notebooks of engravings, only four were used by the Moustériens painters. Of the twenty-eight engravings concerned in these four notebooks of TEMPESTA, our hare hunting scene is found in the notebook I of 1595 which includes seven engravings.
On our plate, the stencil is used in symmetry, the rider seen from the back of the tree removed for the balance and harmony of the decor.
Period: First half of the 18th century.
We date this piece towards the end of the blue monochrome either: 1730 - 1737
Very good condition, no restoration.
