The majolica

In the house we find elaborate majolica work by the firms Richard Ginori, Cantagalli and Villeroy and Bosch, as we know from the ledgers of the Torlonia Archive, but it is not always possible to attribute the origina of a particular work to a specific one of the firms.
The polychrome majolica which covers much of the roofing of the bay windows and the loggia, that in the hall floor, the art nouveau tiles which decorate the two bathrooms on the first floor, the panel with the nest of owls in the lunette above the entrance door of the octangonal pagoda are all of high quality.
Unfortunately, many of the tiles have been lost.
