Vintage Talavera pottery ginger jar or tibor in blue and white Majolica lidded vase Mexican decor


Here we have a Talavera ginger jar or tibor, from the well-known Talavera Casal pottery studio in the city of Dolores Hidalgo. Today the pottery from this studio often features scenes of fruit in bright color combinations and fairly intricate painting style. We know this is an older piece by the simple color scheme and the fairly primitive style of painting that has slightly different floral scenes on each of the sides. The lidded jar is blue over a warm off-white that reflects light such that it takes on warmth or coolness around it--case in point, I took the photo of it as the sun was low in the sky and cast warmth into the greenhouse where I have my photo studio. The ginger jar form comes from a centuries old urn that would have been used to store grains and other foods. This piece is wholly decorative, and even states so on the bottom. Again, only more recently have the glazes been made so that they are lead free and suitable for eating off of. Clean lightly with a damp cloth; I don't recommend immersing in water.

Measures just about 6-3/4 to 7" in diameter at the fattest point by just under 12" tall, with a base 5-1/2" in diameter. The bottom is signed Casal Mexico. There is one spot on the lip, visible when you take off the lid, where a divot was filled in with paint (Photo 8), a pre-production flaw. And one small chip in the foot (Photo 7). There may be other flea bites, but otherwise in good vintage condition. Weighs four pounds unpacked and will be double boxed for shipping.

Traditional color for the Frida inspired home.
