Earthen_Stag_46.85.5

Our Inspiration:Two-Handled Jar with Stag

Italian, made in Florence or its vicinity
Tin-glazed earthenware, early 1400s
Fletcher Fund, 1946   46.85.5

A manuscript from the early 1400s gives a recipe for a “blue [pigment] raised in the Florentine manner,” a likely reference to the striking cobalt-blue paint found on this jar and many others associated with Florentine potters. Sometimes called “relief blue,” the paint is applied so thickly as to create a raised surface.
