Toward the end of the eighteenth century, pan-European styles (such as the Rococo and Neoclassicism) contributed to the decline in popularity of traditional Talavera ware, with its bold blue-and-white patterns. A more delicate type of polychrome floral design was introduced, called azul punche after the popular pale blue confection of that name.
