No puzzle here - it's a dish. The accompanying card says: "This magnificent dish is one of the world's earliest and most remarkable maiolica dishes depicting a story. In the centre the hunter Actaeon is killed by his own hounds after being turned into a stag by the goddess Diana. Around the rim is the battle of the Lapiths and Centaurs." Why Diana and her ladies appear to be in some kind of bath tub escapes me. It dates from about 1495, probably from Siena.
Yesterday's image was of an ink-stand - quite where the ink went and how it opened is a bit of a mystery to me!
