Two-Handled Jar with Stag


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 307

A manuscript from the early 1400s gives a recipe for a "blue [pigment] raised in the Florentine manner," a likely reference to the striking cobalt-blue paint found on this jar and many others associated with Florentine potters. Sometimes called "relief blue," the paint is applied so thickly as to create a raised surface.
