This is a wonderful example of vintage Mexican hand-thrown and hand-painted pottery made for the tourist trade. I'm guessing early 1960s on this one, but no way for me to know.

It is painted but not glazed. The paint is matte and includes wonderful abstract Indian motifs. Circles, squiggles, geometric designs. Most of the white portions are unpainted - that is the color of the clay. Kind of a pale taupe.

This vase shows some age. Since it is painted and not glazed, the paint is more likely to show damage from contact. The rim and foot have chips. Please see photos. You can see this was hand-thrown by the wonderful imperfections in its shape - it is definitely not perfectly symmetrical. Some burn marks from the firing visible on the foot and the bottom of the vase. The clay is very lightweight for its size. No cracks.

The colors are blue, brick red, pink, green, white, black, and orange. The colors are still quite vivid, particularly the blue.

The bottom is stamped with a circular stamp that reads Made in Mexico. The fingerprints of the maker are visible on the bottom.

The vase stands 7" tall.

Due to Etsy's shipping system, my domestic shipping estimate is just that - an estimate from CA (my location) to the East Coast. If my domestic shipping estimate is more than $2 over actual shipping, I will automatically refund you the difference.
