This exquisite dish depicts a group of women enjoying the cooling waters of a shady and secluded woodland pool, set within a border of elaborate grotesque ornament. Its vibrant palette is enhanced by the rich metallic iridescence of red and gold lustre, also used to great effect on the back. Talks: Suzanne Higgott, 1 and 23 July at 1pm
