Talavera Poblana Tibor
Puebla de Los Angeles. Circa 1700 - 1750
A talavera tibor glazed in mineral pigmented cobalt in the 'Chinoiserie' style.
Following the establishment of the Manila / Acapulco spice routes in the 16th century, Portuguese slave traders captured tens of thousands of Filipinos, Chinese, Japanese, Indian and Malays who would be sold into servitude before making the long transoceanic journey to New Spain. Traveling on Spanish galleons, some were brought to Nueva España via Acapulco or Veracruz while others were ferried to Lima, Havana, Panama and Rio where they helped satisfy the growing labor demands of wealthy plantation, estancia and hacienda owners. In Nueva España these Asian communities were known as 'Los Indios Chinos' or simply, 'Chinos'.
The cultural effects of the “Oriente en Nueva España" could be tasted in exotic Asian spices and heard in dialect but the artistic impact was far more profound. Spanish galleons leaving Manila's ports were filled to the deck with goods bound for New World markets but the appetite for certain wares, Chinese blue on white porcelain in particular, was insatiable. Transoceanic journeys were costly and increasing the number of ships or the frequency of voyages was not a viable option. Instead, the solution came in the form of the Chinoiserie aesthetic, a synthesis of Chinese motifs and colonial craftsmanship manifested in furniture made from exotic hardwoods, textiles woven from hand spun Asian silk and of course, the prized talavera pottery from Puebla de Los Angeles characterized by Ming Dynasty temples, pagodas, shrines, exotic flora, fauna and whimsical border designs
