Description Art Potteries de Ovington Brothers:

Excerpt from Art Potteries Antique Pottery is found in almost all parts of the world. There is some reason to believe that Egypt was the first country to produce porcelain, as well as a perfected earthenware. From Egypt, the art traveled through Ph nicia to Greece and Rome, and East through Assyria and India to China and Japan. The Chinese Porcelain manufacture was well established by the commencement of the Christian era, and reached its greatest perfection about the twelfth century- while the Japanese were but a little behind them. The eastern potters greatly improved the quality of the colors and glazes of the enameled pottery, while the Greeks perfected the form of their vases and ornamented them with silhouette designs. After the fall of the Eastern Empire, Grecian artists continued the work in Rome and Etruria. From this time until the fourteenth century there was very little artistic pottery made in Europe. The next great artistic inspiration came from Arabia and Persia. The Saracens overrunning Africa and Spain, brought with them their various arts and sciences, and potteries were established at Majorca, Valencia, Malaga and Granada, whence richly glazed and decorated pottery was sent to Italy. These pieces were imitated by the Italian potters, at that time producing only common work, and carried to a high point of perfection by such artists as Luca della Robbia, Georgio Audreoli and Orazio Fontana. With the extinction of the ducal houses that had been the munificent patrons of the art in Italy, the manufacture speedily declined, and the expulsion of the Moors from Sicily, Spain and Majorca, put an end to these potteries. Offshoots of the Italian potteries had been established in France and Holland, where a sort of Majolica continued to be made at Delft, Moustiers, Nevers and Rouen, as well as at Gien and Bordeaux.
