Maiolica is a type of tin-glazed earthenware associated particularly with the Renaissance, when its colorful decoration was at its peak. It was made in Italy from the thirteenth century and is still in use today. This book provides an introduction to the history of maiolica, a glossary, and a bibliography, followed by sixty-four color illustrations and accompanying text, arranged chronologically to show some of the most characteristic styles of maiolica from about 1250 to 1920.
