Tin Enameled Pottery, known also as Stanniferous Faience from starwwm, the Latin word for tin, is a coarse, more or less porous, ware covered with a heavy, opaque, putty-like white enamel, resembling in appearance thick white lead paint, which, as a rule, shows on the under sides of pieces, or the backs of plates, in ridges or drops where its flow has ceased. The word enamel, as here used, signifies an opaque coating on the ware, as distinguished from glaze, which is transparent or translucent. True majolica and delft wares are enameled, ordinary pottery, such as modern red or brown kitchen ware, is glazed. Tin enamel is a composition of glass and oxide of lead, to which has been added a certain portion of oxide of tin. The latter ingredient produces the white, opaque effect hence the name, stanniferous enamel. ORIGIN. It is not known exactly when and where tin was first used in the glazing of earthenware. It is a well established fact that the bricks of Babylonia and Assyria were coated with a white stannif erous enamel many centuries before the appearance of maiolica in Italy. At a later period tin enamel was in use by the Arabs, and early in the fourteenth century this method of glazing was extensively employed by the Moorish potters of Spain, It was not until the fifteenth century, however that the so-called His pano-Moresque wares of Malaga and Valencia, and the maiolica of the Italian potters began to be produced in abundance. For convenience of study we may divide Tin Enameled Pottery into three groups, as follows I. MAIOLICA OF ITALY, SPAIN AND MEXICO...
