Plate (one of a pair)

Style of Nicola da Urbino Italian

Not on view

These two footed bowls (see also 65.6.7), or coppe, are part of one of the most striking series of maiolica produced in the 1520s. They were made for an unidentified patron and are painted with busts of illustrious heroes and heroines, ancient and modern. The helmets, in their classicizing style, are comparable to those on ancient coin portraits and on contemporary medals.
