Not on view
This rather rare ewer, painted with golden luster and touches of red luster on a bright blue ground, is characteristic of Maestro Giorgio Andreoli, the hugely successful potter in Gubbio. It is decorated with profile busts of a man and a woman in contemporary garb, typical of the imagery on objects believed to have been produced for betrothals and weddings.
