Tonala Mexico Opaque Burnished Pottery Pitcher Circa 1940

This opaque pottery pitcher with a floral design is from Tonala, Mexico. In the burnished style, this pitcher has a large white daisy-like flower on each side, and the rest of the design is in blue and green with white accents and a green fringe under the lip of the spout.

It is 10" high and in good shape except for a small nick on the base and a splash of the white glaze on one spot from before firing (see photos). It is stamped "Made in Mexico" on the bottom.

Tonala was a village famous for its pottery in the 1930s and 40s, attracting many tourists, mainly from the United States. Today it is a suburb of the city of Guadalajara in the state of Jalisco.
