  • lusterware - Refers to pottery ware decorated with metallic lusters using techniques dating from the 9th century or earlier. One technique is of Middle Eastern origin and is best known from Hispano-Moresque pottery in Spain and Italian and Spanish majolica; it involved a multi-staged process that stained the ware. Another technique was cheaper and less complicated, using pigments containing salts of gold and platinum. It was inspired by the late 18th-century Spanish majolica dishes, however, it was an English invention and used to create popular wares throughout the 19th century.
  • vessels - Containers designed to serve as receptacles for a liquid or other substance, usually those of circular section and made of some durable material; especially containers of this nature in domestic use, employed in connection with the preparation or serving of food or drink, and usually of a size suitable for carrying by hand.
