Literature

Similar dishes are illustrated in Dr. Pieter Biesboer, 'Nederlandse majolica 1550 – 1650. Schotels en tegels', Amsterdam, 1997, pp. 34-35, ill. 23-27.

The dish is decorated to the centre with a bird of prey, surrounded by a white-glazed border modelled with bosses.

Between 1550 and 1600 Haarlem was the centre of the maiolica production in the Netherlands. So-called 'noppenbordjes' were produced between ca.1590 until ca.1625. The shape of these dishes was inspired by metal plates and dishes. Usually they are painted with figurative decorations: animals, people, attributes, as is the case with the present example that depicts a bird of prey.
