Ceramics at the DHUB

As promised, here's a more detailed post on the ceramics section of the DHUB. The collection is vast and there's no way I could even attempt to cover it all. So I've picked out a few of my favourite pieces to share. Above and below are two pieces by Picasso that I really liked.
Bust from 1817, produced by Alcora.
Coat of arms tile, approx 1800, with detail below.
Another tile with beautiful naïeve illustration.
Wonderfully stylised hare above, and bull with bird, below.
Detail of story-telling tiles from a huge wall plaque.
Fantastic domestic scene.
A butcher's display.
And another detail from a large wall plaque. If ceramics are your thing, then this is definitely worth a visit.
