A cherubic harvester picks grapes from the vine on this wonderful, hand-painted plate celebrating Italian culture. The term Cappello da Prete translates to “priest hat” and refers to the wide, flat edge of the plate. During the Renaissance, sauce or olive oil was put in the middle of such plates, while cheese, meat, or vegetables were arranged around the edge to be dipped into the sauce.
