Bombay School of Art Platter

C 1900

Diameter 46 cm Weight 3.5kg

Polychrome glazed pottery, painted scene depicting Krishna and Radha, and surrounded by a border of Krishna dancing with the Gopis, there are Devanagari letters on the reverse on this large and sumptuous platter. Under the leadership of George Terry, a new type of glazed pottery was established in Bombay's Sir J.J. School of Art in the 1870s, and exported to companies such as Morris and Co. and Liberty in London. The decorative repertoire was very consciously trying to reconnect with India's pre-European traditions.
