Clay, maybe terracotta, platter with a black glaze on the top. There is a design of what looks like the front portion of a lizard. We don't know anything about these plates, but we can provide a few details. They are definitely heavy, raw underneath (no glaze) and glazed on top. Seems to be either African or Native. Not signed. The appearance kind of reminds us of Scgraffito, but the images are done with glaze instead of carved. The plate is 17.5"L, 15.25"D and 3"H. Great condition, no major chips or cracks.
This and all of our other pieces can be viewed by appointment. Please email us with any questions or to schedule your visit at firstname.lastname@example.org
