This exhibition traces the development and dissemination of one of the nineteenth century’s most significant and successful ceramic innovations. Introduced by Minton & Co. at the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London, majolica quickly became a commercial sensation, celebrated for its three-dimensional ornament and vibrant polychrome lead-based glazes.
