Vintage Jorge Wilmot ceramic owl statue, Tonalá owl figurine, collectible Mexican pottery owl folk art, owl lover gift, owl decor

Sorry, this item has sold.

For the Tonalá pottery collector, there are wonderfully rendered pieces, and then there are pieces rendered by great masters. And here we have a piece created by one of the greatest masters of Mexican pottery. WHO, you ask. (Get it? WHO...) This piece is by Jorge Wilmot, WHO often collaborated with other potters--which he did in this case, and in all truthfulness, I have not been able to identify the other person, although the hallmark is there. It's a very small piece, and it shows so much of what was great about Wilmot, the whimsical face and beautiful mix of glossy sagey gray glaze mixed plus lovely flower design on the back. The piece is marked with Wilmot's signature as well as one other, which appears to be JOE. The owl's beak does have a smudge that was in the paint before glazing.

This squat owl stands about 2" tall at the tallest point, about 1-3/4" wide and 1-5/8" deep. In good vintage condition, with no cracks or chips and very little crazing. Some firing points and marks in the clay on bottom.

Whether an owl lover or a collector of Mexican pottery, the person who receives this will get a hoot out of this small yet very special owl! (Owl say!)
