Gubbio Rinascimento 11″ Cappello da Prete Musician Wall Plate with Lyre Player
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, sauces were put in the middle of such plates, while cheese and meat were arranged around the edge to be dipped into the sauce. In effect, these plates are excellent for serving antipasti and regular meals. They are also beautiful as decor and come with a wire in the back for hanging on the wall.
