Lion and Unicorn Specializes in Majolica Pottery

Majolica pottery has been around for centuries and is still in demand today. It is a type of earthenware, usually glazed and decorated with bright colors and intricate designs.

The name Majolica comes primarily from a kind of Italian pottery produced in the 15th century. Majolica pottery is tin-glazed earthenware used for centuries to create beautiful and practical pieces.

Artists began creating what we know as Majolica pottery in Italy during the Renaissance period. Most artists formulated their pottery designs from clay mixed with a lead glaze, which gave the pottery its distinctive bright colors and glossy finish.

Artists would then decorate the pottery and sculptural designs with intricate designs and motifs, often inspired by the natural world. Other countries, including Spain, France, and England, then adopted this style of pottery.

This shift in Majolica led to another type of “Majolica pottery” with more Victorian sensibilities, which first appeared around the mid-to-late 19th century. Victorian Majolica made its world debut at the Great Exhibition in London in 1851, showcasing a style later iterated upon and copied by others. 

Majolica pottery is still famous today and is often used to create pieces that are both beautiful and practical. The pottery creates Majolica plates, dinnerware, vases, planters, and other decorative elements. The bright colors and intricate designs make it a popular choice for collectors and interior designers.
