Dia.: 44,5 cm

Condition: (UV-checked)
- With a reglued break across, from ca. 2 to ca. 8 o'clock.
- A negligible ca. 3 cm hairline from the rim at ca. 5 o'clock.
- Typical small superficial chips, spots of minor glaze loss and superficial wear throughout.
- The glaze very well preserved.
- An old drilled hole on the back.

While the original pierced holes for suspension may indicate the vertical position, we wonder whether the dish was not painted from a horizontal perspective.
