The lustrous ceramics created in Valencia were coveted by wealthy Europeans, especially Italians, who ordered their family arms emblazoned on each piece. Indeed, they purchased matching table services of different shapes. On this deep bowl, the arms of the Dazzi family are surrounded by a pattern of bryony leaves.
