During the excavations that were carried in Plaça Gran in Mataró in 1982, a late mediaeval cache of Catalan ceramics was found. It was a collection of more than 400 pieces of decorated ceramics and more than 500 earthenware and glass objects from the 16th and 17th centuries.

This plate has a border from what is called the “salsitxes dobles” (double sausage) series, and in the centre is the main decorative motif inscribed in blue circles with a yellow strip: a sun with six points whose face is painted blue.
