Description

An opaque, white Ceramic glaze that contains Stannic oxide. Tin glazing was discovered by the Assyrians in the 9th century. As it spread from Moorish Spain (Hispano-Moresque ware) through Europe, several popular types of tin glazing were developed including Majolica in Italy, Faience in France, and Delftware in Holland.
