Almada, is located on the south bench of the river Tagus on the opposite side of Lisbon. In this sense the use and acquisition of tin glaze wares was always related to the capital’s production. Faience objects recovered in this city reveal a close proximity to the consumption model recognized in Lisbon and its social and economic distinctions. This paper aims to present a first approach to the study of this type of wares in Almada considering that it will be included in a broader project about the study of Post-Medieval material culture in this city. The main discussion will be around who were the main consumers of this type of pottery.
