Dish with Heraldic Shield


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 307

Toward the end of the fifteenth century, Valencian potters created new forms, modeled after contemporary metalwork, with raised studs and ribbing. These objects were often embellished with an overall dot-and-stalk pattern, which served as a field surrounding a family crest.
