Glossary

  • Majolica

    Majolica

    Majolica ware consists of an earthenware body which can be cast or moulded into a wide variety of shapes (including umbrella stands, garden pots, salad bowls etc.) and which is then decorated with a selection of oxide-rich opaque glazes of varying hues. Produced at the old Etruria factory between 1860 and 1910, Majolica proved to be particularly popular with the Victorians.
