Deep Dish


Not on view

This dish (or brasero) comes from a lavish ensemble of tableware created for the delle Agli family of Florence. The family's arms, featuring a rampant wolf, appears at the center. (The purplish color is as close as the potters could get to the prescribed red.)

The arms are ringed by garlic, a playful reference to the consonance between the family name and the Italian word for garlic (aglio). The scrolling vine pattern of the border is recognizable as bryony.
