This magnificent Hispano-Moorish dish was made around the 1500s in Manises, a Spanish town in the province of Valencia.
The metallic luster earthenware decoration is decorated on the umbilicus of a rabbit, on the basin and the marli, with friezes alternating geometric motifs and flowery scrolls. Leaves and fruits decorate the back of the dish.
This kind of foliage decoration is generally attributed to the workshops of Manises, which was an important center of production in the 15th and 16th centuries.
Hispano-Moorish art brings together a collection of styles and artistic forms directly derived from the influences of the western Mediterranean basin, including most of Spain, the Iberian Peninsula and the Maghreb. The main fields of this art are architecture, ceramics, literature and music.
