17th c.

The broad rim of the beaten silver plate bears twelve medallions with busts of the Apostles and Slavonic inscriptions amidst finely executed chased floral motifs. This decorative style, which combines Orthodox iconography with Renaissance traits, is encountered on a series of plates produced in the mid-17th century at Brasov, Transylvania. The silver workshops of Transylvania supplied the Orthodox world of the Balkans with silver objects. Inv. No. 22082
