Footnotes

  • A variation of this design is attributed to Niculoso Francisco on the basis of a waster found in the Calle Pureza in Triana on what is believed to be the site of the pottery, see Anthony Ray, Spanish Pottery (2000), fig. 917. Niculoso was an Italian potter who may have been trained in the della Robbia workshop and came to Seville shortly before 1500.
