This plate featuring a girl holding a vase is a hand-made adaptation of a dish created in the 1540s-1560s in Castelli, an Italian center of majolica production. The vase is decorated with the coat-of-arms of the aristocratic Kigi family. On the border there is a garnet ornament typical of that period. In 17th-century Italy plates featuring beautiful women were very popular. Such dishes served as gifts for brides, hence their name, wedding dishes.
