Plate with angels

Italian, probably Ferrara

Not on view

The finest examples of incised slipware were made in the north Italian city of Ferrara in the fifteenth century and are among the many achievements of court artists working for the Este dukes. The technique reaches back to Tang China and is noteworthy for the contrast between the sharp, incised lines and the fluid colors of the glaze.
