Comentarios:
Powder applied paint is referred to as "spattered", and sponge-applied paint is referred to as "sponged". After 1840, decoration was applied exclusively with sponges, cut into desired shapes, and without accompanying painting. This cut-sponge décor, however, appears primarily on Whiteware.
