Pot

On display

The size and proportions of the stoneware body are typical of those dating from around 1560, although the mounts are more sophisticated than most. The inclusion of human figures in the design is exceptional. The mask motif of the thumbpiece is possibly taken from an engraving of about 1542 by Antonio Fantuzzi after Rosso Fiorentino.
