Martin Boyd handpainted dish. Item 2022.This Martin Boyd dish is decorated with the head of a woman in Middle Eastern headwear. The black portion has been painted onto the brown ground, whilst in the white areas, the ground has been scraped away to reveal the white of the body. This technique is known as sgraffito. The diameter is 132 mm and it stands 28 mm high. Like most Martin Boyd pieces it does suffer from some crazing. It would date from the very early 1950’s.
