Myth 1: All majolica has a "wet bottom" (wet = glazed). This is completely untrue. There are many majolica pieces that have unglazed bottoms or unglazed feet. This myth arose because all majolica had a preliminary opaque glaze of tin or lead enamel on which the bright colored designs were painted in metal-oxide glazes. Sometimes pieces were dipped in this preliminary glaze, hence the "wet bottom" myth, but just as often the preliminary glaze was painted on with a brush. A dry bottom, feet, or table ring does not mean the piece is fake. Most often, dry bottoms are encountered on examples from continental Europe, especially France.
