Description

This delightful dish is slightly naively painted with a scene showing a milkmaid milking a cow with another woman with child in a pastoral landscape. The border has flowers and two cute winged cherubs.

The dish is not marked - there is a old collector's label which is not legible.

The dish is classic Italian majolica (or maiolica), earthenware covered in a creamy white slip (liquid clay) and the painted in colours before being fired with a transparent lead glaze.

The colours are what are sometimes called "istoriato" colours, after the type of ware made in the 15th-17th centuries which tended to show scenes from history or myth.

In the 19th century Italian towns, such as Castelli, which had excelled at this type of maiolica revived the art for a tourist market as the Grand Tour was in full swing.

This example is particularly nice for being in its original turned wooden frame for wall hanging, with simple metal staples which can be removed and the dish easily taken out of the frame.
