Tin-glazed earthenware charger decorated with brown lustre. Spanish lustreware enjoyed its golden period in the 15th and 16th centuries when it was considered a luxury in the European and above all Italian, noble households, as many such ceramics were fabricated on demand, as shown by the coat of arms of noble Italian families depicted on them. The success on the Italian market was such as to justify a ban by the Venetian Senate in 1455 that prohibited the introduction into the domains of the Venetian Republic of foreign "lauori de terra cotta" with the exception of "corzuoli e Majolica de Valencia" who were therefore exempt from import duty. The diffusion that ensued explains the influence such ceramics exerted on Italian pottery and the large number of Hispano-Moorish pieces that today are found in Italian museums. - (CB.62)
