The collection includes 3.918 pieces, ranging from the fourteenth century to the mid- nineteenth century and ends when the Pujol I Bausis factory starts to function and although basically showing Catalan tiles it also includes examples of Valencia, Talavera, Sevilla, Teruel and Muel, Delf tiles. It was acquired by the City of Esplugues in 1999.
