Greetings: I purchased this charger at a chicken house auction in Southern Delaware. The auctioneer threatened to drop and break this "ugly" treasure on the ground unless someone offered him at least $1 for it - I had to pay twice that for it ($2) - bummer! This style of Palissy Ware / majolica charger is named after the French potter, Bernard Palissy (1510-1590). It is stamped/signed on the reverse "Jose A. Cunha, Portugal, Caldas Rainha." It is a generous 15+" across.
