Pair of Earrings
These dramatic, colorful earrings were most likely made in Constantinople, perhaps as an imperial gift to a Visigothic ruler of medieval Spain, where the earrings were found.

St. Sebastian was a Roman military officer martyred about AD 300 by being shot full of arrows and then clubbed to death. He was prayed to for protection against the plague.

This motif does not refer to a specific classical text, but many examples of sixteenth-century maiolica depicted Cupid engaged in various activities characteristic of children, and his presence may illustrate some long-forgotten adage. The repeating patterns illustrated on the outer ring of the dish are known as “arabesques”, and were influenced by imported metalwork from the Middle East, esteemed as luxury wares in Renaissance Italy. During the 1520s and 1530s, artists from Gubbio workshops often painted arabesques with a luster glaze in order to imitate the golden color of polished brass or bronze. The back of the plate is decorated with…
