They produced relish dishes, One of the most popular majolica forms was the pitcher, which was sometimes designed to appear as if it had been formed from vertical slices of wide bamboo, with more slender bamboo branches employed for the pitcher’s handle.
Other pitchers resembled ears of corn, while syrup containers were routinely festooned with fat sunflowers or clusters of lily leaves and flowers.
As in England, potteries coated their ware with clear glazes, so that the pieces positively shined.
Griffen, Smith & Hill was one prominent Pennsylvania manufacturer, who sometimes marked its pieces with “G. H.” or labeled them as “Etruscan Pottery.” Other American companies known for their majolica in the second half of the 19th century were Morrison & Carr, Chesapeake Pottery, and Edwin Bennett.
When Minton & Company of Staffordshire exhibited a new line of ceramics at The Great Exhibition of 1851 in London, the firm called it Palissy ware.
The name came from a 16th-century Frenchman named Bernard Palissy, whose vividly colored, high-relief, lead-glazed plates, platters, and pitchers had inspired Minton’s new, French-born art director, Léon Arnoux.
Sardine boxes and cigarette holders were also produced—many were topped by African-American figurals, known then as now as blackamoors.

In 19th-century America, young girls did much of the painting, usually earning as little as 25 cents for a 12-hour day.
This was well before child-labor laws, so the idea that these children were expected to work long hours and handle lead glazes was not seriously questioned until the first part of the 20th century.
