Charger with the Conversion of Saul, Jan Bogaert (possibly), 1550

Charger with the Conversion of Saul, Jan Bogaert (possibly), 1550

earthenware, h 43.6cm More details

This Antwerp charger would originally have been some 50 cm in diameter. When the rim around the central scene was damaged, it was removed and replaced by a brass mount. Such a dish would never have been used for eating, but would have been displayed on a wall as a painting in ceramic. The absence of the rim now reinforces the dish’s resemblance to a painting.

On display in room 0.7
