Jug from Villafeliche, Aragon, 18th century. Glazed ceramic. Late baroque style jug made of ceramic and decorated with high temperature enamels on a white tin slip. These enamelled motifs are combined with relief decorations obtained by mold. The typology of the piece combines the Italian-style jug, with an ovoid belly and vertical arc handle, with that of the typically Spanish spout jug, characterized by the protruding spout that starts from the mouth. The decorations reveal the oriental influence, with large floral bouquets arranged asymmetrically and complex landscapes with architecture and palm trees, in which some figures, these already completely Western, appear. The motifs appear brushed in black manganese, and colored with ocher, blue, green and red enamels, mainly. Aragonese ceramics from the 17th to 19th centuries will be characterized by a strong personality of its own, combined with the influences of Talavera and Catalonia. It will have three main centers: Teruel, Muel and Villafeliche, the first two with tradition since the 16th century, and the third created at the end of the 17th century. The one from Villafeliche will generally be very popular ceramics, although pieces of greater quality and complexity, both typological and ornamental, were also made in the 18th century.
