description

Summary

Basins with central rounded bosses to secure ewers and low sides to hold the water poured into them were popular table and toiletry items during the early 16th century. The serpentine motif around the rim and the scale pattern on the basin were often found on maiolica produced in Deruta. The Lamb of God, with a cross banner and standing on a book, is a traditional symbol of Christ.
