Plate with Joseph Fleeing Potiphar's Wife

c. 1575-1600
Artist/maker unknown, French
It is believed this plate was made in France since the inscription on the back is written in that language. The composition is taken from an engraving by Bernard Salomon (French, c. 1508 - c. 1561), a source used by a number of Italian maiolica painters.
