The author analyses the Haban faience collection of the Bratislava City Museum—the oldest existing Slovak museum (founded in 1868). The first part of the text provides a chronological survey of the Haban ceramics acquisitions and informs about their exhibition, presentation and publishing. This is followed by the typology and chronology of the objects. Based on the type and colour of the glaze and the painted decoration as well as their typology, the artefacts are divided into the following groups: the oldest objects from the period before 1700, objects with other than white-coloured glaze, objects decorated with blue painting influenced by the Delft faience, pharmacy vessels, floor tiles, white-glazed objects from the period 1700–1730, Late or Post-Haban faience and the ceramics with guild emblems. Finally a Haban stove from Malacky castle is mentioned.
