Description:

An earthenware platter with drainer printed in blue with the Rome pattern also known as Tiber.  It is unusual to find an early printed platter with the original drainer.  (Drainer shown separately below.)  This pattern was inspired by two views taken from engravings found in Views of Rome and its Vicinity published by J. Merigot and R. Edwards, London, 1796-98.  The two related source prints are included below.
