Gubbio Rinascimento 9″ Cappello da Prete Musician Wall Plate with Lyre Player
Gubbio was one of the centers of Italian pottery production during the Renaissance. Contemporary production respects traditional methods and designs. The name of this plate translates to “priest’s hat” because of its shape with a small bowl-like center and wide, flat edges.
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 sauces. In effect, these plates are excellent for serving antipasti like vegetables arranged around the edge and dip in the center. This plate is beautiful as decor.
