The deep form is rarer than the shallow dish, though both ultimately derive from metal prototypes. A comparable deep dish was sold in these rooms, 7 October 1948, lot 149, as part of the Beit Collection, and another from the Gutzwiller Collection, formerly in the Collections of Frederick the Great and William Randolph Hearst, sold 12/13 December 1996, lot 126.
 

68 AN HISPANO-MORESQUE LUSTRE POTTERY ALBARELLO, VALENCIA OR CATALONIA, SPAIN, 1450-1500    
Estimate: 3,000—4,000 GBP
Lot Sold.  Hammer Price with Buyer's Premium:   42,000 GBP (Estimate smashed)
measurements: 30cm. height

of waisted cylindrical form on a low broad foot, with short cylindrical neck and everted mouth, decorated in cobalt blue and overglaze lustre with overlapping stiff leaves, the neck with chevron motifs

The combination of cobalt blue and copper-red lustre is rare in fifteenth-century Spanish pottery. An attribution to Manises in Valencia has been suggested, though it may be the work of Valencian craftsmen who had emigrated to Catalonia. This jar may be of the type described as pots blaus regalats ("pots melted with blue") in a document of 1449 (see Ray 2000, p.89)
