Six Art Deco Mexican Pottery Leaping Deer Plates from Tlaquepaque Mexico

This set dates to the 1930s or 40s, and the pattern is no longer found abundantly.

The leaping deer and highly stylized flowers are in yellow and two shades of brown on tan. The rim is yellow. The glaze is high gloss. They are a little over 10.5" in diameter and heavy: about 1.5 pounds each.

They are in good condition, though one plate has a small rim crack we are pretty sure is from the original firing (see photo).

They are marked "Mexico" on the bottom and come from Tlaquepaque or possibly Tonala, both near Guadalajara. Unlike many of the decorative pottery pieces from that region and era, these were originally meant for use, not just to be admired for their beauty, although they certainly are beautiful.
