We are proud to offer this very rare late 18th / early 19th century talavera Poblana blue on white tibor.
Glazed over nearly every inch of surface area, this large talavera tibor features a classic cobalt glazed grapevine pattern over a milk white slip. Many of the design elements, forms, throwing methods, firing practices and glazes manifested in Mexico's talavera trade were drawn from Italian, Spanish, Muslim and Chinese predecessors. Chinese blue on white pottery, for which Mexico had an insatiable appetite, had become vogue in the late 16th century. Jars, basins, platters, bowls and many other wares made their way to Mexico via Acapulco's China trade ports, and in order to satisfy the growing demand, the spirited indigenous and itinerant artisans of Puebla drew upon Spanish, Italian, Mudejar and Oriental designs to form their own unique creations. This beautiful tibor, while anything but common, is characteristic of the unique design synthesis that Puebla's potters had come to be known for. The overall level of quality is superlative.
