This is a Covered Dish. It was designed by Gio Ponti. It is dated 1925. Its medium is porcelain.

The updated neoclassical designs of Gio Ponti revolutionized the look of the Richard-Ginori firm during his time as its chief designer, from 1923 to 1930. His whimsical forms and irreverent decoration helped propel the Italian ceramic factory to a first prize at the 1925 Paris Exposition.

It is credited Chrysler Museum of Art, Gift of Walter P. Chrysler, Jr., 87.58.
