Edward C. Moore Collection, Bequest of Edward C. Moore, 1891
Not on view
On the front, Manises lusterware braseros were decorated with radial designs and filled with dense, regularized vegetal motifs and other patterns, all organized around a central device. On the back, they were also luster-painted, usually with larger-scale designs and often with more exuberance. Puncture holes in the rims indicate that such dishes were sometimes displayed on walls when not in use.
