Sindbad the Sailor

£180.00

Full set of 8 Rosenthal Sindbad the Sailor wall plates designed by Bjorn Wiinblad.

Sindbad is one of the characters from the Arabian Nights, a collection of Middle Eastern stories narrated by Scheherazade, the wife of a Persian king named Shahryar. The story, however, was not a part of the original 14th century manuscripts of the Arabian Nights. It is believed that European translators added it during the 17th and 18th centuries. The tale is about a merchant called Sindbad (also spelled Sinbad), who lived during the third Islamic caliphate. The stories of Sindbad’s adventures are filled with details of giant birds, sea monsters, whales as big as an island, goddesses, and evil fictional characters that are appealing to children and even adults.

Each wall plate measures 17 cm diameter.

Gold lettering on the back of each plate – signed Bjorn Wiinblad

Wonderful condition, no damage to the porcelain, gilding perfect.
