Decorative motifs

Throughout the 17th century, floors had maiolica tiles with square decorative elements and a palmette motif, all in turquoise. But this was not the only one: there were three other types.
Two of the three had a square or rectangular maiolica perimeter decorated with hexagonal or rectangular shapes in which floral elements, human figures or animals were inserted.
The colour was usually turquoise, though sometimes green and yellow were used.
The third type imitated marble, was often glazed in white, turquoise and violet and was arranged to form stars.
