English: Dish

Repousse and chased brass
With Adam and Eve
Germany possibly Nuremburg

Both the central design and the decoration upon the rim of this dish were made using a series of stamps impressed into the metal. Nuremberg trade regulations stated that all punches and stamps had to be applied by hand. The scene depicts the Fall of Man, when Adam and Eve were tempted by the serpent to pick an apple from the Tree of Knowledge. Scenes like this one were popular on brass dishes of the 16th century as they added a decorative element to objects for household use. This dish was probably used to wash hands, yet contemporary paintings show that dishes were also displayed upon dressers when not in use.
