Plate of earthenware covered front and back in creamy white slip with incised designs, translucent-glazed except for the foot. In the centre is a man holding a sword and shield (arms of Visconti); and a woman playing a lira da braccio, with a shield with a fire-ball on it. Arms refer to a marriage, possibly Alfonso d'Este and Anna Sforza, or Lodovico Sforza and Beatrice d'Este. Flowers on the ground and in the sky; foliate pattern on the border.
