48. Florence prob. ca.1431 (Giunta di Tugio) – Jar from Santa Maria Nuova

Florence prob. (Giunta di Tugio) ca.1431 - Metropolitan Museum NY

Some of the earliest jugs and bowls of that period were made in Orvieto (Umbria), Perugia and Tuscany, especially Florence that as a great mercantile centre of Italy was open to influences imported from Spain, Low Countries and the Orient. Motifs of that age were simple and colours available were purple and turquoise green. One of the finest potters of that era and probably the earliest Italian potter we can attribute existing wares of maiolica with confidence is Giunta di Tugio di Giunta.
