This impressive majolica dish was made In Tuscany, especially in the municipality of Castelfiorentino, in the sixteenth century.
Majolica is a production technique that originated in "Moorish" Spain. It first appeared in Italy at the end of the fourteenth century and was a great success. The term was originally applied to shiny earthenware with metallic reflections.
The decoration "a sgraffito" polychrome alternating shades of green, yellow and purple, consists of several honeycombed patterns on the marli until reaching in the center the representation of two cherubs holding a cross and surmounted by the initials "P and O" that could be those of the client.
