Majolica. The fired piece was bathed in this preparation and was put into the oven using a three-footed base which prevented the ceramic from sticking during firing. On this glassy covering, the surface of the piece was decorated with metallic oxides; the mark of the craftsman was placed on the piece and later it was fired again. The production of majolica with gilded drawings had been made in Spain since the Arab period.
