Coimbra pottery is based on museum reproductions dating back to the 15th century with polychromatic styles in geometric forms and images of roosters, fish and peacocks with Asian and Moorish influence. By the 17th century, Vasco da Gama had returned from India and Chinese porcelain became known in Portugal. Chinese influence soon disappeared and a truly Portuguese style of colorful pottery began in Coimbra’s many workshops. By the 17th century, Coimbra pottery offered reproductions of Portuguese hunting scenes, where feathers, as well as wild animals such as boars, deer, rabbits, and dogs, can be seen. Within a century, the color of choice had become blue on a white background. Today, stores though out the Alta (Old Quarter) sell hand-painted Coimbra pottery for a handful of local workshops. All are signed by the artist and come with a century mark to show what style they are in.
