Gubbio Rinascimento Cappello da Prete 11″ Plate with Grape Harvester
Gubbio was a center of Italian pottery production during the Renaissance. Contemporary production respects traditional methods and designs. Most plates we import from the area are known as the “priest’s hat” because of their shape.
During the Renaissance, a sauce was put in the middle of such plates, while cheese and meat were arranged around the edges to be dipped into the sauce. In effect, these plates are particularly excellent for serving antipasti and regular meals. This plate is also beautiful as decor.
Please let us know in the comment section of checkout if you would like us to wrap a wire around the back of this piece so that it can hang as wall decor.
It is 11″ in diameter. Measurements are approximate.
