This late 19th century talavera Poblana tibor is glazed all over in mineral pigmented cobalt on a cream colored slip. The design includes a large armorial crest surrounded by elaborate foliate motifs and trailing grapevine patterns.
Much of the inspiration for Puebla's talavera trade was in response to Mexico's insatiable appetite for Chinese blue on white pottery. 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 Oriental designs to form their own unique creations. This unique art form came to be known after its city namesake, 'Talavera Poblana'.
Measures 9.5 inches high.
Condition notes: in good, original condition.
