This covered dish is the finest example of San Zeno pottery we have seen. San Zeno in the province of Pisa had almost twenty pottery factories in the mid-20th century. One of these pottery studios is of particular interest because it was founded in 1926 by a woman who wanted to train women to work in the ceramic arts. The focus was on copying the terracotta pottery of the 15th century. This covered dish features a foliate design engraved in Sgrafitto into the clay. Sgrafitto or etching into clay or plaster was a technique employed even in architecture by Rafaels’ workshops, adorning the facades of Italian palaces. This little covered dish brings this history of the High Renaissance alive.
