Talavera Poblana Basin - Circa 1750 - 1800.
Originally acquired from a private San Antonio, TX. collection -- we are proud to offer this very rare 18th century talavera Poblana basin. This basin features a central armorial plaque surmounted by the Mexican eagle and serpent and flanked by two Azteca Indian chieftains in colorful period costume. Clearly made for the private use of an aristocrat, the basin is inscribed "Para uso del Po Por Sr. Don Antonio Aguilar" or "For the private use of Senor Don Antonio Aguilar."
The basin sits on a shallow footed ring base rising on a gentle slope and terminating into a flat edge. The glazes were made from natural pigments of yellow, green, orange, cobalt and mauve blended in balanced fashion. The overall level of quality is superlative.
Dimensions: 14 inches diameter.
Condition: in overall excellent condition.
