Similar, but smaller, dishes were sold in our Rooms on 9 October 1979, lot 251 and 12 February 1980, lot 293 and in our Amsterdam Rooms on 5 July 1989, lots 14 and 15 (Guépin Collection). Dishes of this type are found in a number of collections, though mostly of a smaller size; however, for a dish of even larger dimensions than the present example see Gudmund Boesen, op. cit., no. 28 and where he notes that of the twenty-one dishes in the Castle Collection, six have diameters ranging from 46.5cm. to 50cm.
