  • Ceramics in the Museum are the best historical examples of ceramics of the region and shows the process for the production of ceramics. The bulk of ceramics is a personal collection of the Museum's founder, Manuel González Martí. Also here are works of ceramics 19-20 centuries, including the Juan Ruiz de Luna and his contemporaries, named Bolshoy tsarskoselsky glory of talaverskogo pottery. From visiting this Museum, a bit frustrated with the Interent, as seen more beautiful ceramics.

This collection is organized into SERIES that illustrate the evolution of the style, use of colors, motifs of decoration and influence of other craftsmen. The main Series are: 1) series of butterflies: in blue and white background; designs of butterflies that alternate with flowers, figures of animals with Mudéjar influence. (siglo XVI y XVII) 2) series of cuts: in blue and yellow touches. Motifs recall work iron with heads of angels, clusters, circles. (3) series Tricolor: used 3 colors, black for the figures, blue and orange pair the inside of those drawings. (4) SERIES POLYCHROME: MAXIMUM SPLENDOUR of the CERAMIC of Talavera.
