Dear fellow scholars,

Thank you for bringing up this issue about color. I have never noticed it before. It is very strange that the orange/redish color used on other parts of the coat-of-arms is then not also used as a background for the Bohemian lions.
One hypothesis is that the maiolica workshop in Urbino did not have access to a correct version of Isabella's arms in color, but there could have been other issues with the availability, application, and firing of the colors.
I would be interested in any theories you may have.
