Item description: 

Signed and dated 1529 on the back by the artist, this plate—depicting a woman identified by the inscribed scroll simply as Giustina—is typical of those produced in Italy during the Renaissance and may have been part of a larger service that commemorated a special occasion, perhaps a wedding.
