Dish with the Castration of Uranus, Het Moriaanshooft, c. 1680 - c. 1685

h 5.0cm × d 38.5cm. More details

Around 1680 the Moriaanshooft pottery factory in Delft succeeded in producing painted decorations in a variety of colours, as can be seen in the edge of this dish. Such objects with ornamented edges and Classical scenes were very much in vogue among the European elite. This dish bears the arms of the Duchess of Braunschweig and Lüneburg, and may have been a wedding gift.
