Plate with a Geometric Interlaced Pattern

Active selection in cart:
Earthenware from the Islamic world was popular in Europe and imported on a large scale. European potters adopted Islamic decorative motifs early on. The ‘Turk’s head knot’ pattern, or interlaced strapwork, on this 16th-century plate from Siena is derived from ornament prints by Leonardo da Vinci or Albrecht Dürer. They too were fascinated by the intricate Islamic decorations. Date: c 1525. Object ID: BK-NM-13136.
