Excerpt from Hispano-Moresque Ware of the Fifteenth Century: Supplementary Studies and Some Later Examples In what may be termed accidental or surface qualities, however, Spanish majolica not only shares the palm with the most beautiful of pottery, but can claim for its superficial constituent, unequalled historical importance. The application of tin-enamel to earthenware by the Moors of the Peninsula handed the torch of ceramic progress, as it were, to the West; along the line of its transit occurred for centuries the only ceramic development in Europe; and it followed the Spanish flag to the New World. Analysis of the sources of the Valencian ceramist's decoration would have been based, had it been treated of at the present stage, upon material of so fragmentary a nature, that a mere statement of the problem it presents must commend itself as more satisfactory. Now that, thanks to the publications of Don G. J. de Osma, the lustre technique of fifteenth century Valencia is known to have been derived from Malaga, the gulf between the Valencian ornamental motives and those typical of Andalusia appears so much the greater, that it must be assumed the transplanted art was influenced by decoration imported from the Levant. Leaving aside the naturalistic treatment of plant-form in the styles that arose during the later portion of the fifteenth century, which may be referred to a local reaction, it is not difficult to defected analogies both of form and decorative selection between the Valencian pottery with inscriptions in simulated Arabic characters, and those of the nearer East, Persia especially. The same class of Valencian ware exhibits, nevertheless, motives which, if not to be referred to any of the sources mentioned, appear equally foreign to the contemporary Spanish influences to which the Moors in Valencia were liable. The identification of this strain, with its likeness to the Byzantine, or Low-Greek, is an uncertain enterprise, so long as acquaintance with the potteries of Byzantium and of neighbouring Levantine States is imperfect.
