Condition history (a) Wood platter. The rim is molded and gilded.
Color notes (a) This platter is painted on one side with a bust of the Virgin, her head covered by a fold of her dark blue, gold-bordered mantle. She holds to her bosom with her left hand the Child Christ.
Attribution history (a) Italian School, Florentine - 14th cent. Primitive school of Florence; (b and d) Italian School - 14th cent. (b) as per Richard Offner, 1925; (d) not Florentine, as per Frick Art Reference Library, May 1965. The attribution to Luca di Tomè does not seem to be quite correct; Barnaba da Modena or his workshop would be more appropriate. The intimate pose recalls Ambrogio Lorenzetti.
