When was it made? The Chronological evolution of Portuguese faience

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


For several years the chronological attribution of Portuguese faience was made by Art Historians based on information provided by dated objects from national and foreign museums and private collections. Archaeologists used such studies helping them to date pottery and sometimes even archaeological contexts. Nowadays it is possible, based on archaeological finds from Portugal and abroad, to define a more accurate chrono-stylistic evolution determining six production moments from 1520 to 1766 which can in fact help archaeologists in their future studies in post-medieval archaeological contexts.
