Perhaps no other pottery combines natural grace with whimsy, rich color – and a sense of humor – as well as Victorian majolica. Majolica, a soft-bodied earthenware, was first introduced by Minton & Company (also, Minton Ltd.) at London’s Crystal Palace Exhibition of 1851. It took natural forms from corn to cauliflower and molded them in low or high relief decoration. As a bonus, this tabletop ware was finished in a wide array of vibrant colors using a lead or tin glaze, which merely added to the allure. The resulting look was unmistakable — and to this day, majolica is easily recognizable and much desired.

This colorful, antique Majolica footed bowl, with open handles, was created in the morning glory design.
