|Type Name:||MORISCO GREEN|
|Type Index:||LEAD GLAZED COARSE EARTHENWARE|
Varied paste types occur, including chalky, cream-colored, majolica-type paste, and buff to light orange hard, compact paste.
Surfaces are covered with the same dark emerald green, tin-opacified, glaze that is found on Green Bacín and Green Lebrillo.
Vessels are small kitchen utility and tableware forms.
|Comments:||Morisco Green differs from Green Bacin and Green Lebrillo in its smaller tableware and utilitarian vessel forms. Like Melado, it derived from medieval Hispano-Muslim pottery traditions, which made extensive use of tin-opacified honey colored and dark green glazes (See Lister and Lister 1987).|
