Ceramic Fragments in the Istoriati Style at Prague Castle
Plate depicting
the Visitation
This fat bowl or plate stands on a
bell-shaped base; it is glazed
with low-quality Maiolica and
cold-painted in Italian manner. It
shows two women standing in
front of a house, with a hilly
landscape in the background
and can be interpreted as a
depiction of the Visitation. The lip
is decorated with a continuous
floral motive. The basic colour is
brown, added with blue and
yellow, yellow is also to be found
on the rim. Origin: Italy or Central
Europe, last third of the 16th
century or first third of the 17th

Fragment of a plate
with the coat of arms
of the Pernštejn Family

A rescue excavation at Prague Castle in 1925 yielded six ceramic fragments in a cesspit that belonged to at least two maiolica plates. The plates were decorated with Istoriati paintings and produced in Italy in the
second half of the 16th century. These ceramic fragments have not been
published yet.

This ceramic fragment of
a plate from a dinner service
by Vratislav of Pernštejn was
meant to commemorate his
induction into the Order of the
Golden Fleece. He was awarded the order by King Philip II
of Spain in the 1555. The
service also reminded him of
his marriage with Maria Manrique de Lara, combining the
coat of arms of both families
with a depiction of the Golden Fleece. The dinner service may stem from an Italian
workshop; the find was made
during archaeological excavations in the Lobkowicz Palace
in 1956–8.

Italy – Urbino, around 1540.

The finds of stove tiles show
antique and allegorical motifs that developed north of the
Alps during the Renaissance.
Motifs in the tile production
usually exploited antique
motifs in a contemporary
setting. The central motif,
even in the case of portrait
tiles, was lined with antique
architecture (columns, pillars,
floral decoration), creating a
convincing spatial illusion. All
displayed tiles are dated
around the middle of the 16th

Architectural Terracotta

The purest Italian Renaissance beyond
Italian territory is represented by Queen
Anne’s Summer Palace from the second
half of the 16th century, built by Emperor
Ferdinand for his wife on the northern foreground of the Prague Castle. The presence of Italian masters was mostly connected with the reign of Emperor Rudolf
II (1576–1611). Apart from the royal court,
important noble families used the services of Italian artists; e.g. the Lords of Pernštejn were the frst in Bohemia to apply
terracotta reliefs in architecture.

566 terracotta details stem from the Pernštejn Palace built in the 1554–60 on the
eastern side of the Prague Castle. Unglazed details covered the frames of doors
and windows, intrados and cornices. The
relief decoration is based on Classical Antique patterns and serves as a proof of
Italian infuences on the architecture of the
high nobility.
