Tin-glazed earthenware dish

This dish was excavated from a pit in Paul Street, Exeter. It matches very closely a number of dishes excavated in the kiln sites at Montelupo a small town near Florence, and was almost certainly made there. It is decorated with foliage in cobalt blue in the alla porcellana style.
