Portuguese pattern tiles from the 1st half of the 17th century with floral and geometric design.
The mural consists of a full 4x4 pattern module with acanthus and intricate “ferroneries”.
During the first 50 years of the 17th century Portugal adopted the Italian majolica technique for the azulejos, moving away from the Moorish designs and techniques from the century before and painting more European late Renaissance designs based on tapestries.
These types of azulejos are named “Tapetes” or tapestry tiles. The scale of production was monumental, set to fill entire wall of palaces and churches, sometimes even the ceilings.
