We have made this large ornamental plate in majolica with a diameter of 62 cm with a central scene inspired by the “Pastoral Subject” by Francois Boucher (18th century). The border is richly decorated in Raphaeleque style with inserts of hilly and fluvial landscapes alternating with dancing cherubs on a blue background.
The dish presents a vast sample of the decorative richness of the Raphaeleque, with garlands, leaves, cherubs and winged figures from the man’s bust.
It is a unique and signed piece of particular value, where the decoration of ceramics is real painting. Its realization required a great decorative effort; both the central scene and the Raphaelesque figures are painted with a brush tip with great attention and precision. We are certain that you will spend hours observing this dish before having grasped all the details of its meticulous decorations.
