Maiolica panel or plaque


A polychrome panel or plaque depicting a kneeling saint, the Virgin and Child and angels. The saint, possibly St Francis or Beato Arcangelo Placenza di Calatafimi, Sicily (1360-1460), is kneeling and looking up towards the Virgin and Child, who float on a cloud. There are two angels in the clouds over the head of the saint and one sitting on the ground holding an open book with a cross next to him. The scene is surrounded by a frame effect in brown and green. Possibly Sicilian.
