Albarello (storage jar)

Valencia, probably, c. 1400 - 1450

14 cm (height); 14 cm (width)

tin-glazed earthenware (maiolica)

These are probably examples of the unlustred production of the Valencia region. An albarello in the Instituto de Valencia de Don Juan, Madrid, has similar ornament in lustre and blue.
