A fine and unusual oval terracotta serving dish decorated in white and terracotta marbled glazes in the antique style and could equally be from the 19th or 20th century. The lightly potted dish is of shallow oval shape with a slightly raised rim and flat base. The body of the dish is decorated in white and terracotta colored slips to form a fine and detailed marbled patterning and thickly glazed. The dish is not marked and has minimal wear. The piece originated from a collection which contained Mocha ware and other early glazed examples however we are uncertain of the date of this piece.

In very good condition.
