Description

KILLADOON HOUSE, PROPERTY FROM AN IMPORTANT IRISH ESTATE


A CASTELLI MAIOLICA LARGE DISH, CIRCA 1720, GRUE FAMILY WORKSHOP


painted with a landscape below a border of winged putti, bouquets and masks, in a felt covered frame

45cm. wide; 17¾in.


Condition Report

A section of the border between 7 and 10 o'clock has been broken in two triangular sections and restored. There is an associated crack extending from the repaired section and a crack from the rim in the middle of the upper broken section. There is a faint hairline crack to the rim at about 12 o'clock and a few scattered glaze chips to the moulded border. The restoration is old and has disoloured and should ideally be refreshed, it may disguise some glaze losses.

The dish has a 20th centuy velvet-covered mount, the material to the exposed border has faded.
