Description

Tin-glazed erthenware painted in polychrome with Doge Agostino Barbarigo supervising the loading of Money into a Ship destined for the Relief of Naples.

Reddish earthenware, tin-glazed overall. Painted in dark blue, green, yellow, orange, and manganese-purple. Shape 66. Circular with shallow curved sides, slightly everted at the rim.
Doge Agostino Barbarigo supervising the loading of Money into a Ship destined for the Relief of Naples. The ship is moored beside a wharf on the right. At the foot of the mast there are six money bags, five of which bear a label inscribed with the name of the coins they contain: `docate papal' (papal ducats), `docate ugar' (Hungarian ducats), `docatti ancon' (Ancona ducats), `docate ve' (Venetian ducats), and `venetia' (Venetian ?). A rectangular notice suspended from the rigging is inscribed `fatte fatte fatte/et non parole' (deeds, deeds, deeds and not words). The Doge stands in the middle, pointing to the label with his left hand and to the money with his right. Four togati stand behind him and, on the extreme left, a sailor approaches carrying four more bags, two of which are labelled `March' (small silver marchesane or marcelli) and `Troni' (silver lira introduced by Doge Niccolò Tron). The foreground is green and the background dark blue with pronounced vertical brush strokes. The back is decorated with a central blue spiral surrounded by concentric circles: wide blue, orange and blue, two narrow blue, and a yellow zig-zag border filled with transverse blue lines. The edge is encircled by a blue band.
