Floral Design Opaque Mexican Pitcher from Tonala circa 1940

Here's a beautiful example of the opaque pottery from Tonala, Mexico.

There are several Tonalan style, but the burnished style is far more common than the opaque. This splendid pitcher has a large white daisy-like flower with yellow center on each side and the rest of the design in blue and green with white accents and a brick red stripe under the lip of the spout, all on a traditional red clay base color background.

It is 11" high and in good shape except for a small nick on the base and a very tiny one on the rim (see photos).

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.
