Pottery decorated with coloured lead glazes applied directly to an unglazed body, hard-wearing, typically relief molded. Minton’s Palissy ware, known generally as 'majolica', made with a range of lead glazes improved with new colours, was introduced to the public at the 1851 Exhibition, and later widely copied and mass-produced.  Other top potters of this ware were George Jones, Thomas Sargent and Wedgwood.  This ware was also made to copy Bernard Palissy's Solange collection from the 16th Century, as the piece shown here by George Jones.
