Comentarios:
Morisco Green differs from Green Bacin and Green Lebrillo in its smaller tableware and utilitarian vessel forms. Like Melado, it derived from medieval Hispano-Muslim pottery traditions, which made extensive use of tin-opacified honey colored and dark green glazes (See Lister and Lister 1987).
