Although the swan design on this lovely little pitcher is purely Michoacan, the browns are fairly unusual for that region.
It measures about 5.5" tall, and the high-gloss glaze, which carries a swan design on both sides, drips about two-thirds the way down, with a rustic low-glaze finish on the bottom third and on the bottom. It is unmarked.
It is a sturdy piece, with thicker clay than most pottery pieces from Mexico.
It is as unusual as it is pretty and in very good condition, with no chips or cracks, some glaze loss on the handle. It is probably 1930s or 40s.
