What is Majolica?
Any tin-glazed earthenware with opaque white glaze, decorated with metal oxide enamel colour(s). Frequently prone to flaking and somewhat delicate, reached Italy mid 15th century[3. Renaissance Italian maiolica became a celebrated art form. Maiolica developed also as faience(in France and various countries), and as delftware (in UK and Netherlands). Known also as tin-glazed pottery.
Majolica: Any pottery decorated with coloured lead glazes applied directly to an unglazed body, hard-wearing, typically relief molded. Minton’s Palissy ware,also known as 'Majolica',made with a range of revolutionary new coloured lead glazes, was introduced to the public at the 1851 Exhibition, and later widely copied and mass-produced.
Majolica: English tin-glazed earthenware in imitation of Italian Renaissance maiolica [tin-glazed], having an opaque white glaze with fine painted decoration, also named ‘Majolica’, also introduced at the 1851 Exhibition. Very rare. Known also as ‘English tin-glazed majolica’ [tin-glazed].
Victorian majolica: Mass-produced and widely available pottery made using coloured lead glazes applied direct to the 'biscuit' body, mostly English, but also European and American, 2nd half of the 19th century. 'Victorian majolica' is also used to refer to the very rare 'English tin-glazed majolica' – tin-glazed pottery made in imitation of the Italian Renaissance maiolica process and style. less
